We can’t grow good crops without using pesticides, fertilisers and GMOs.
We need to stop listening to ‘experts’ who say
We can garden in a sustainable, organic way.

Eco-minded people are creative and develop new ideas.

The population is rising, gardens are getting smaller and our soils are degraded.
And it’s time to understand:
That organic gardening cannot compete with conventional growing.
It’s time to abandon the belief

Organic gardeners produces some of the healthiest food in the world.
But only for the wealthy, who can afford the cost.

I have shamelessly stolen the style of this from an awesome piece of writing by Michael Liebreich on Medium, in order to create my own version.
