Organic Fruit, Vegetables and Groceries
I feel sad when I see the damage that has been done to the land by irrigation near Shepparton, in the Goulburn Valley.
Many trees are dying because the salt build up in the underground water. Other areas suffer soil erosion. Pollution from pesticides and fertilisers affect our streams and rivers.
I had previously been told of the health benefits of organic fruits and vegetables. I did not consider it worth the extra cost.
Now I see that I am more likely to be supporting farms which care for the earth by buying organic foods.
I would not be consistent with my beliefs to do otherwise.
I care about the earth.
