Green String Farm in Petaluma
At Green String Farm, we practice “natural process agriculture.” We keep the soil and plants healthy and free from pesticides and artificial chemicals. We produce beautiful food with very low input.
A farm is a system. Attention to soil health is essential to producing healthful food. Use of cover crops, compost, compost tea, and crushed volcanic rock and oyster shell mineral supplements help ensure that the earth is able to grow vibrant fruits and vegetables.
The goal is to create a self-nourishing system where less human intervention yields better quality crops.
We grow by the motto “50% for humans, 50% for nature,” maintaining an important balance between crops grown for human consumption and crops grown for soil improvement. This approach also benefits the community by preserving green spaces and wildlife habitats, protecting the soils, conserving resources, and stimulating the local economy.
