- Removes Chlorine, Chloramines, VOCs, and Pesticides/Herbicides
- Attaches onto any standard garden hose, up to 10,000 Gallons
- No KDF that has antibacterial properties and copper. ONLY Powerful Catalytic Carbon.
- Third Party Tested! Yes, we have testing to show what we claim.
- Made in the USA and great product for children, gardeners, and pets
Yes, the sun is still shining up on the Gold Coast and we could really do with some more. Not sure if one day is enough to help all those farmers and local vegetable gardeners in the region though.
In the video above I discuss about Chlorine in the local town water. Here where I live in Tweed Heads you can actually smell it at times while you are having a shower.
Now, I have nothing against the chlorine in the water, if we didn't have it we would have all types of issues. One thing I don't like though is that it kills off worms and beneficial microbes.
So, some things need to be considered while gardening and the direction that you want to take.
Microbes in the soil do a wonderful job turning starches produces into available nutrient uptake. Basically on the rainforest floor there is 1 million microbes per square inch and without these guys there wouldn't be a rainforest.
So, why aren't we taught this in schools or even science? Because most teachers don't even know this themselves, so how can they pass on the knowledge?
The answer is simple, we can pass it on to our children and others around us. Just sharing this blog post would get the word out some more.
Did you know that farmers have been destroying our Soils since the beginning of modern agriculture?
You see when you till the soil (dig it up) you kill the microbes every time. Now these dead microbes do provide some nitrogen each time.
But guess what? Each time you have less and less microbes and you then have to start adding fertilizers etc.
Also, fragile soils have their top soils removed each time by wind, rain and the weather, then the soil can become completely barren and even lifeless.
When we don't take care of our soils and microbes we end up with this. Read here to find out more about salinity and the destruction of Australian soils.
Now, I know this is a huge subject and this website is mostly for those growing food in containers and small space gardeners. But once you know more about the subject you may think more about supporting farmers that practice sustainability, organics, biodynamics and permaculture. This way our hard earned dollars are put to good use.
Please share this blog post with others to help spread the word about sustainable living and help to create a fresh food future for all.
