BIO AUSTRIA Farmers’ Market: Organic grows on the best soil. Organic farmers from BIO AUSTRIA know the value of soil, because it is the basis for the production of our daily food. Plants, animals and humans benefit from healthy soil. Therefore, organic farms care for the soil — for the benefit of all.
Soil is a storehouse of nutrients and home to numerous living things. In a handful of organic soil there are more small creatures than there are people in the world. These billions of soil organisms are responsible for soil fertility and plant growth. But fertile soils not only provide valuable food, they also do much more: Healthy soil ensures clean water because it filters impurities. It can also better absorb large amounts of water and in many cases can cope better with periods of drought. Soils also have a strong influence on the climate because they are large CO2 reservoirs. The healthier the soil, the higher the quality of the products — a good reason to buy organic. On September 11th, BIO AUSTRIA farmers will be presenting their unique regional products at the JKU campus in Linz. Festival-goers can sample, taste, enjoy and talk to the organic producers. Information about organic farming and the services organic farmers provide to the soil, climate and environment round out the BIO AUSTRIA Farmers’ Market.
