“Hey farmer, farmer, put away your DDT.
I don't care about spots on my apples, leave me the birds and the bees.”
- Joni Mitchell, 1970.
For the past half century, chemical inputs in agriculture have had a horrifically degenerative impact on life in the soil, biodiversity and human health. By returning to natural farming methods and aligning with nature’s genius, we can witness a miraculous resurgence of life in the fields that sustain our lives with their yields.
Support the transition
Balinese farmers are ready to make the transition to natural farming, but the key challenges are overcoming the initial cost of organic inputs, the heavier labour required to get started, and ensuring that food and financial security are not jeopardized in the event that yields dip temporarily during the transition.
So what will incentivize farmers to face these challenges? Establishing a stable market for naturally farmed rice will catalyze a movement away from farming with chemical inputs.
Let's bring on the change !
Our goal is to regenerate 6 hectares of land in Subak Uma Lambing by finding buyers for 3 tons of naturally farmed rice per month. This will involve the efforts of a critical mass of farmers in the Subak Uma Lambing cooperative to inspire other farmers to join the movement too.
We see the potential of eliminating chemical inputs from farming in Bali one farmer and one rice paddy at a time, making this island recognized for a regenerative movement that could reach from local to global.
Bersama kita bisa! Together, we can!
All rice is sourced from Subak Uma Lambing, a rice farming agricultural area in the heart of Bali involving 250 farmers in its cooperative
