healthy soil is vital

Kaiwhenua Organics Whaingaroa

Keeping the soil really healthy is vitally important for growing healthy Kai. Planting Lupins and broad Beans are planted to fix the nitrogen in the soil.

Organic principles are practised to keep soil healthy. Knowledge about the properties of plants is essential when you start growing.

 For example if some plants are heavy cropper, the garden is left to rest from growing any food in it for a while. Its important to keep replenishing the soil with  green crops to ensure nitrogen is replaced.
