In a nutshell, we use regenerative no dig stock-free (veganic) techniques in our seed garden. This is important for both the health of the planet, local environment, our bodies, and for plants we grow too (of course!).
We do not use any chemical sprays or pesticides. If we experience issues we use barrier techniques when needed (for example, deer, as we live on a trail when herds have visited and eaten entire crops in an evening). But for the most part we encourage a diverse population of plants that attract predators (birds, insects, snakes, frogs) and this creates a healthy balance in the garden negating the need for pesticides.
We do not use any animal-based inputs. This has a reduced carbon footprint (indirect ocean benefit), doesn’t support industry runoff which directly impacts ocean health in many cases, reduces water usage (from where inputs came from, heavy water usage, and also your garden from mulch or cover), and helps restore soil structure. Farms do not need ruminants for soil health, and having them contained on a farm isn’t instilling a natural migratory pattern anyway. No dig does encourage a wonderful soil health for healthy plants.
We use no-dig (no-till) techniques. Not digging or tilling helps carbon stay in soil that indirectly helps oceans. It also reduces weeding. We are almost a closed loop garden, as we have not imported anything onto the farm for years (this is stock-free by design but an important point and definitely has ocean benefit). However, the biggest impact on the environment is often what the gardener does outside the garden (for example, what they eat or buy).
We are attempting to regenerate the land where we reside. The land was previously a horse farm, so has a lot of compaction in addition to water issues (runoff from neighboring farm during rain events). We are attempting to restore the quality of this soil.
