ABOUT TRANSITION FARM
Seed produced organically/bio-dynamically is better suited to organic/bio-dynamic growing conditions.
We are breeding our seed for flavour, resilience in a low input growing condition and acclimation to our Southern Hemisphere, southern Victorian latitude and climate.
Conventional seed production is one of the most chemically intensive types of agriculture.
Bio-dynamic seed crops are grown in living soil within a diverse thriving ecosystem.
From the time the seed sends out its first roots, it is encouraged to access minerals and nutrients using feeder roots and to form complex symbiotic relationships. It is nurtured throughout its life by focusing on the health of the whole ecosystem to maintain the balance within the individual plant. By using photosynthesis to accesses nutrients and build cells, the full nature of the plant’s expression has been guided by sunlight.
