Organic means to me that people are aware of the consequences of their actions. We know that artificial chemicals used as pesticides and fertilizers are polluting the soil and our water supply. These chemicals are upsetting the natural, ecological balance nature intended by favoring one part of the balance at the expense of another part. All parts have to work together for the benefit of the whole. Organic means to work in harmony with, not against, Mother Nature/Mother Earth. Artificial chemicals destroy the life of the soil, without which all our efforts at a peaceful, anxiety free life come to nothing.
