You might want to learn more about Bio Intensive farming. Here’s why…

95% of the seed varieties ever grown in agriculture are now virtually extinct. Much of this is due to the growing of relatively few crops, and the frequent use of hybrid seeds for the crops that are grown.

In the bio intensive farming system, soil fertility is maintained by allotting 60% of what is grown to compost crops. A focus on the production, through these crops, can ensure that both the gardener and the soil will be adequately fed and that the farm will be sustainable.
