The Well End HH-2 CSA Micro-farm model Supporting the concept of the ORFC that smallholdings are better than big holdings.
Agricultural researcher and author Richard Higgins has founded a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) programme at the Well End Micro-farm.
-project in the village of Well End (south) Hertfordshire.
Some years ago he completed a ten year study of the fertility making works of the World Classic author Sir Albert Howard CIE., MA., etc.,
Howard spent 30 years in India researching organic husbandry and so successful was his work that it spread all around the world and was the founding cause of the Soil Association.
Richard Higgins has unlocked these works from the British Library and now teaches and trains growers in these principles in Africa and India and the UK as they are not currently taught by the Soil Association or anywhere else.
DECLINE IN BRITISH AGRICULTURE
The UK is crying out for these original organic principles because people in general are lacking high nutrient value food which is responsible for the many degenerative ailments that are prevalent today.
DEFRA have announced that the mineral content of UK food is declining.
This is a very serious decline in agriculture and needs to be reversed.
Richard has developed from the work of Sir Albert Howard a way of increasing nutrient uptake in all his fruits and vegetables which seems to relieve any type of ailment. Indeed he has cured his own oasteoarthritis by this method of cultivation.
Richard, being originally a student at the Royal Berkshire College of Agriculture, finds these fertility making systems the easiest he has come across in any system of cultivation and they give the fastest results too. Therefore his HH-2 CSA model will provide nutrient rich fruit and veg in the simplest way possible to its members. He is a member of the McCarrison Society on nutrition and a lecturer to the Soil Association and this programme is supported by the Plunkett Foundation.
