Growing with the Patterns of Nature

โ€œAn observer can easily distinguish the clean intricate patterns of holistically grown produce from the broken and coarse patterns of old or conventionally grown produce. The analogy of a photograph of a jigsaw with pieces missing and slightly out of focus, compared to one that is complete and in clear focus, could be made to illustrate this difference. The consciousness naturally spots between the two patterns a teleological impression that appears to aspire towards an involuted and intricate order. The organic plant achieves this mysterious becoming better than the non-organic oneโ€ฆ.โ€

Growing with the patterns of nature

The Fibonacci Factor

Fibonacci and organic growing share an intriguing connection, where mathematics meets nature in a fascinating way. The Fibonacci sequence, a series of numbers where each number is the sum of the two preceding ones (0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, and so on), is a mathematical concept that appears in various aspects of the natural world.

In the realm of plants, the Fibonacci sequence manifests in the arrangement of leaves, petals, and seeds. For example, some plants exhibit spirals in their seed patterns or the arrangement of leaves around a stem that align with Fibonacci numbers. This mathematical phenomenon is not imposed by humans but rather a reflection of inherent patterns in nature.

On the other hand, organic growing is a method of cultivation that prioritizes sustainability and environmental harmony. It involves avoiding synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, instead opting for natural and eco-friendly alternatives. Organic farmers work with the principles of nature, recognizing the interconnectedness of soil, plants, and surrounding ecosystems.
