Organic Farming

As part of an outdoor field visit with my environment perspective class, we took a trip to an organic farm located a few hours outside of Pune City. A nonprofit organization had created a way for small farmers to switch to organic farming and sell their produce to people living in the city. I learn that organic farming was a more sustainable way of producing crops by maintaining the soil nutrients, and it was better for the environment than commercial farming that used heavy pesticides. The farm also had some of the best tasting food I ever eaten, which was a relief from the heavy amount of spices in city.
