Veganic growing is any system of cultivation that avoids artificial chemicals and sprays, livestock manures and animal remains from slaughter houses. Alternatively, fertility is maintained by vegetable compost, green manures, crop rotation, mulches, and any other method that is sustainable, ecologically viable and not dependent upon animal exploitation. This will ensure long term fertility, and wholesome food for this and future generations.
The Vegan Organic Network is a charity that follows three main strands to making vegan-organic grown food more widely available:
- To specify the methods and standards for Veganic growing and to enable growers to become certified using these standards.
- To support Demonstration, Education and Research Centres.
- To encourage vegan-organic cultivation on a small scale as well as farm scale growing.
