There are those who believe in locally grown organic food because they are health-food aficionados and others who believe corporate industrialized farming is bad for your health and some who believe that food trucked halfway across the country is harmful to the planet.

Organic farmer Richard Kann believes he’s on a mission from God.

“We regard this as a health ministry,” said Kann, owner of Heart of Christmas Farms, an organic farm that produces hydroponic vegetables in east Orange County. “Everything is natural and God-given. We call it God’s diet plan.

“Kann is putting his faith as a Seventh-day Adventist — healthy body, healthy mind, healthy spirit — into practice by raising squash, beets, tomatoes, lettuce, herbs and greens without chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides or soil.

  2. Organic all the way! I’ve just started my own little organic garden patch in my back garden and have started a small compost heap too.

    With Organic Week coming up (15th-22nd October) in Canada, I wrote a post about everything organic. Benefits, definition, graphs, pictures and even 10 simple tips on how to start your own organic garden patch.

    Hope it inspires to go organic 🙂
