One of the simplest ways to understand the advantages of organic and biodynamic agriculture is to think about the connection between people, plants and pollinators.
Bees, birds, bats, beetles, and butterflies are all important pollinators. Cross-pollination helps at least 30% of the world’s crops and 90% of our wild plants to thrive.*
We love these little guys.
We don’t use synthetic pesticides that may be harmful to pollinators, and we set aside at least 10% of our land for biodiversity, which provides acres of forage for bees and other pollinators. Healthy pollinators help us grow our crops, which translates into the herbal medicine that we all love and need.
