Welcome to basil season!Basil is back in this week's Seasonal Boxes and is a herb with plenty of stories: "In ancient Rome and Greece, it was believed that when sowing basil seeds it was not just recommended, but required to yell and curse angrily as you planted them. There's even a French phrase, semer le basilic (sowing basil), which means raving. More rightly so, in other times and places, basil was regarded as a king among herbs. In India it is considered sacred, and dedicated to the gods Vishnu and Krishna. They would actually swear upon basil in a court of law. It's also been used as a good luck charm, or a declaration of love, and has been put to use for medical reasons. It's been used for headaches, bug bites (and scorpion stings), sore muscles, and for 2000 years it has been known (and confirmed) to help with flatulence. Combine that with tasty soup, and you've got yourself a winner." For more fun facts like this about basil click here.

A study published in the British Journal of Nutrition in February 2016 showed that organic milk contains around 50% more beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids than non-organic. In addition to organic milk, the nutritional differences also apply to organic dairy like butter, cream, cheese and yoghurt. This study, the largest systematic review of its kind, broke down the data from…
Nothing in life remains the same. There is however, often an idealistic and sentimental view in organic agriculture that things must remain the same to keep up with the traditional founders of the organic agriculture movement. Founders such as Rudolf Steiner, Sir Albert Howard, Lady Eve Balfour and J.I Rodale, who wrote in 1954 “Organics…
