[Translate to Swahili:] What is Organic?

[Translate to Swahili:] Organic Agriculture is a production system that sustains the health of soils, ecosystems and people. It relies on ecological processes, biodiversity and cycles adapted to local conditions, rather than the use of inputs with adverse effects. Organic agriculture combines tradition, innovation and science to benefit the shared environment and promote fair relationships and a good quality of life for all involved  

Producers

Farmers can benefit from growing organic crops because they don’t require expensive inputs such as chemical pesticides and farmers. In fact, organic agriculture has many innovative techniques for making the most of what is available to farmers.   Farmers also benefit from improved health as they do not experience the toxic effects of dangerous chemical inputs.  

Consumers

Organically grown food is dramatically superior in mineral content to that grown by modern conventional methods. This means that it provides more nutrition to its consumers. The other major benefit of consuming organically grown food is that it is free of contamination with health harming chemicals such as pesticides, fungicides and herbicides.   

Environment

Organic agriculture is the most natural form of food production.  Growers of organic take care of their soils and other resources, as they are inputs into their production systems. By returning organic matter to soils, farmers can improve the natural fertility of the land, rather than using chemicals which make the land increasingly reliant on external inputs.
