Food Ethos Farm

 

IMG_7457After a long drive to the middle of nowhere, we arrived at the organic Food Ethos Farm in Melite (MT), where Ashley Cote and Curtis Brown transformed there parents’ farm intoan organic example for the region. NO sprays, no chemicals, no animal mishandling, but an integrated eco-agricultural system.

Great discussions on how to optimize the energy, nutrient, and water management at the farm scale. However, it was immediately clear to us that organic farming today still has serious drawbacks. If you choose to use no chemicals and to produce healthy food (which we all should opt for), you have to deal with the enormous growth of herbs and weeds. We proposed to help a couple of days in the garden in order to provide some support and respect for what Ashley and Curtis are doing each day: picking strawberries, harvesting crops, weeding, markets, and more.

Organic farming is a real hard job, not only because people usually still choose for the most cheapest food instead of the most healthy, but also because of governmental bottlenecks hindering  the development of sustainable food production. This is why we as people can and should make the difference! Why spend so many money on unnecessary provisions, such as alcohol, toys, electronic gadgets, etc. instead of spending a couple of bucks per week more to eat healthy food, avoid diseases, and support the environment? It’s time to change our habits and support young farmers as Ashley and Curtis who work hard on a future for our grandchildren.

Keep up the good work, mates!
