Hello everyone
I have found this article very exciting to read
as we are what we eat.
I have tasted the strawberries and green beans grown the Natural Agriculture method and I will tell you that they are so tasty and rich in color and they last longer in storage between eating times then what I have purchased at the market.
Everyone should take the time to lern more about this method of gardening as I know that when you start to practice natural agriculture it will enrich your spirit as it nourishes your body.
Stay well and always be happy.
