Farming God’s Way is a sustainable method of farming that provides the following benefits
The soil is never plowed
Plowing destroys soil structure and soil organisms, it reduces soil fertility, and it leads both to erosion and evaporation of water.
This provides multiple benefits
Seeds are planted to high standards
This includes proper spacing within rows and between rows, planting at the proper depth, and precise application of fertilizer or manure.
Crop rotation with several crops is encouraged
Monocultures are avoided. Multiple crops minimize risk and bring benefits to the soil. God’s garden was diverse!
Crop residues are never burned
They are kept on the land as part of God’s blanket and as food for the soil.
Waste is minimized in every step
As stewards of God’s creation, we should minimize the waste of time, money, seed, inputs, soil, water, etc.
Trees are incorporated into the system
Agroforestry combines crops and trees in strategic ways to improve the long-term sustainability of the land. God’s garden had many kinds of trees.
