Biodiversity: Margaret's Farm
Organic farming is about a lot more than removing pesticides: it's about supporting an ecosystem that's healthy from the soil up.

The long slow process has started paying off, with flocks of birds returning to the habitat they had abandoned because their food sources were gone.
