Here at Events, Etc. we have always placed top priority of the quality of the food we serve our clients and their guests. From intimate partycatering to large-scale event catering, we always use organic ingredients in our delicious recipes. But why does going organic makes such a difference, really?
- A healthier you. Organically grown food not avoids harmful pesticides or herbicides, but it also helps you steer clear of other chemicals that typically contaminate non-organic soil, such as nitrates and heavy metals. Instead of simply piling the nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, organic farmers use a wide range of natural fertilizers that break down well and add nutritional value to fruits and vegetables. Organic growers are also prohibited from using GMOs, or genetically modified organisms, as an aid to growth. Most crops grown in the U.S. today contain at least some of this form of genetic tinkering, even though we currently have no way of knowing what the long-term effects on humans and the environment might be.
- A healthier world. Robust plants thrive on naturally rich, well-kept soil -- the kind of soil organic farmers always use. Properly cultivated organic soil not only contains more nutrients, but it also retains water more efficiently. And instead of using toxic pesticides, organic farmers use companion planting and beneficial pests to control pest populations naturally. By contrast, chemical-based farming tends to pour chemical fertilizers onto depleted soil to force growth until the soil becomes completely dependent on these chemicals for any kind of yield at all. Meanwhile, the heavy use of chemical pesticides just makes local pests grow into increasingly resistant super-pests!
