Nowadays, industrial agriculture orientates itself on productivity and profits, all too often forgetting its own roots in the process. But agriculture does not end at the border of your own allotment. Agriculture has an immense influence on the health of the soil and thus of a country and its inhabitants. Natural agriculture includes the microorganisms in the soil, the animals, and also the food that is produced, and it concerns farmers and consumers alike. It is only when agriculture takes Nature and its creatures into consideration, and not just the economics, will it be able to serve its valuable purpose.
If possible, shop directly at the farms in your neighbourhood. They need your support and encouragement.
Also join our various events on Natural Agriculture.

Today’s industrialised agriculture creates sheer “agricultural deserts” through the wrong maxim of “Ever bigger, ever faster, ever cheaper”. But healthy soils and the pure drinking water filtered through them form the basis of all life. Only the small, flexible, local, rural agriculture possesses the corresponding sustainable solutions in order to help the soils recover. For example, climate farming with biochar: It increases the humus content and thus the fertility of the soil and in this way positively influences the soils, water, climate and foods – in short, the entire ecosystem.
Already 90% of all baby food and 80% of all processed food is genetically modified. Genetically modified substances can be found in corn and soya seeds, and just as frequently in animal food for dogs, cats, birds, cows and fish, as well as in our own food. The effects of genetically modified organisms have a disastrous potential – ranging from allergies to cancers and even death, causing tremendous damage. They unhinge the entire food chain. We show you what to pay attention to in order to have only natural, organic food on your plate.
Are GMOs really dangerous for human beings, for animals, and for nature, especially for plants, soil and water? Read our Fact Sheet for an overview of Genetically Modified Organisms; the state of our food today; and what you can do about it to ensure that your family, friends and pets are safe from this silent invasion.
