Safe food and flower production is of utmost importance at Left Fields.
Food can be eaten straight from the ground and flowers are handpicked to be enjoyed from straight from field to vase.
We practice no-dig farming.
This eliminates reliance on heavy machinery and preserves soil integrity. Reduced compaction leads to improved soil structure and biodiversity. A healthy soil biome supports plant immunity and health.
Under the no-dig method perennial weeds are killed off before garden beds are established. These weeds are killed by smothering the area with tarpaulin for several weeks then, rather than digging into the ground, cardboard is laid out as a foundation (several layers thick) and garden beds are built on top of the ground using organic matter and compost.
An ongoing advantage to the no-dig growing method is the reduced weed pressure over time. When soil is left undisturbed, any weed seeds present in the soil will remain dormant (as they are not lifted to the surface via digging) and will therefore struggle to germinate.
