All about composting
Composting is fun. But safety is more important than that.
Play safe, live safe.
Organic-farming -- Uncommon benefits from common sense You do not
have to be a rich landlord owning hundreds of hectares. You don't need
pots of money. You can create a paradise in your own backyard, if you
just employ some long-forgotten commonsense techniques. You can give
life to this earth which gives you life. Organic-farming is
actually a combination of a whole lot of ideas and techniques which
employ natural and commonsense means. BIOFARM demonstrates some
simple and commonsense techniques for enriching the health of our
farms and gardens. BIOFARM is a concept developed by Dr. Parthasarathy
No chemicals -- no poisons : We use no man-made chemicals to
artificially enhance plant yield. As a result, there are no residual
poisons in our yield. Food tastes better and healthier. You and your
children and your grandchildren, are saved from slow poisoning. You
avoid all kinds of bizarre health problems. No poisons get injected
into the soil. No poison leaches into your the water you drink.Your
world is a healthier and a happier place to live in.
Vermiculture and vermi composting : The humble and
helpless earthworm can do wonders to your soil. It works tirelessly,
in more than one way. Vermiculture is the art of breeding earthworms.
Vermi compost is the art of creating organically-rich manure using the
earthworm. Two processes are involved. The earthworm consumes and
digests decaying organic matter. Thus, we get rid of organic wastes
effectively. The excretion of these earthworms is now rich in all the
chemicals which were there in the original feed. The excretion is
water soluble so it gets easily absorbed by plant roots. Your plants
get better food for growing. And in addition to this, earthworms dig
burrows in and around the roots. This makes the soil loose and well
aerated. Your roots spread faster and effortlessly. Should we all not
be grateful to this humble creature ? Can you find any better solution
to make your plants grow faster and turn healthier ?
Read this press-report about
and then find out how you too can
raise earthworms at home.
Mulching : In this technique, leaves and flowers which get
dropped from trees are all collected around the base of the plant. Two
phenomena take place:
Surface water near the roots gets conserved and does not get dried
up. Evaporation is arrested. The soil becomes more spongy and
absorbant. The soil does not cake up or become hard. Your plants
get more water for a longer
time, and stay healthy and fresh.
The best part of mulching is that it costs next-to-nothing. GOD gives
you the raw material for making the mulch. All that you have to do is
to use it wisely.
The mulch, decays gradually and releases trace chemicals and
precious compounds to the soil. In addition, the mulch also encourages
propagation of earthworms.
Bird and small animals sanctuary : Greedy man has intruded
and occupied mercilessly, land which rightfully belongs to other
species. We have chopped trees, we have filled up land and made
concrete jungles, We have dug up the earth for a million selfish
reasons. We have driven all other animals into helpless reclusion. We
try to reverse this phenomenon, by showing that we welcome other
animals too. We all know, but have conveniently forgotten, that birds
bees bugs beetles all help in pollination of flowers. they help
propagate plants by helping movement of seeds. Yet we drive these
friends away. At BIOFARM, we show you how to make, install and operate
simple devices which will bring these friends back to where they
belong. You will always be the winner.
The inspiration for this initiative comes from :
Organic manures : The best solution to improving soil
fertility is given by GOD himself. What comes from the earth, should
go back to the earth, so that more can come from the earth. Sounds
logical, isn't it ? But how many of us really understand this simple
truth ? BIOFARM uses all kinds of organic wastes, to return those
precious chemicals back to the earth.
You get a free gold mine in your back yard.
Tree hospital : You get sick, you go the hospital. Your
plants or trees get sick, what do you do ? Usually you add a whole lot
of pesticides and poisons. Your plants may revive, your earth takes
one step closer to destruction. Do you really want this to happen ?
This tree hospital will show you simple and effective ways to treat
and heal common plant and tree problems.
Rain water harvesting : When GOD made this earth HE showed
us his way of blessing us -- rain. A lot of this world was exposed to
the rains directly, absorbing a major part of the manna from heaven.
Man's greed gradually reduced this exposed area, as a result of which,
water does not reach the soil, but gets drained into the sea. Your
trees are starved. Man built concrete jungles, laid tarred (bitumen
surfaced) roads, did every kind of isolation which would finally
reduce water penetration into the soil. BIOFARM can show you how you
can reverse this suicide tendency. More underground water means more
roots get more water, more transpo-evaporation, more greenery, more
rains and then the cycle goes on endlessly.
Every drop counts !
Save now, or suffer later
Simplicity is divine.
