Healthy soil, healthy plants – healthy you

The fresher the better
I recently wrote some guest blogs for Fresh-Range, a local company delivering high-quality fresh, seasonal produce. I loved researching the blog as I learned things I didn’t know – such as exactly how much of the vitamin content of produce is lost over time, even when it is kept in cold storage (1 fresh apple = 2 cold storage apples).
For the second blog, I touched on the subject of soil. Our quality soil is being quickly lost, which is likely to have a major impact on the health of our environment and of us. By buying organic produce from small, family-run farms where tending the soil is a priority, we can help preserve our all-important soil.
So here’s why I love a carrot with a bit of soil on it: https://www.fresh-range.com/news/fresher-the-better-part2
