How it works

 

Why

Our modern diet is high in sugars and fats but short of essential minerals and vitamins.  Sugars and fats are not bad in themselves our bodies actually need them the problem is they become addictive, they actually block the signals telling us we are full so we overeat. The majority of the population has more fat then is healthy while many are suffering from threats such as diabetes, heart attacks, strokes and cancer.

The solution is to incorporate into our diets significant quantities of fresh fruit and vegetables grown in nutrient rich soil as they provide the essential minerals and vitamins and signal our brain that we have eaten enough.

Unfortunately much of the commercially available fruit and vegetables have been genetically selected for shelf life and transport and lacking the essential minerals and vitamins.

Many people are fortunate enough to grow some of their own food, but even then it is difficult to grow the wide range needed for optimum health on a continuous basis while many others people lack the space, time or skills to grow their own food.

The aim of this web site is to connect consumers who are concerned about their health with growers who are willing to grow healthy produce fruit and vegetables. In particularly we are keen to promote the highly beneficial varieties which are not generally available commercially but when grown in nutritious soil provide the essential minerals and vitamins.

We need the bulky vegetables such as the cabbages, spinach, Kang Kong etc. but these can be somewhat tasteless, so in addition we need specialist herbs and spices which add flavour. Most people will not eat the needed amount of vegetables unless they are gingered up to taste scrumptious.  There are also many medicinal herbs and plants which are highly beneficial for health.

A particular feature is the use of the wicking basket system which provides growing plants which can be eaten absolutely fresh; many of the most beneficial vegetables have limited shelf life and deteriorate rapidly.

How it works

Consumers can readily search what products are currently available for sale, (or are available for pre-ordering).  The search engine has sections for locality, species and varieties of plants, and whether seedling, mature growing plants, produce or services. Consumers can simply click ‘all’ or the specific features they are looking for.

Growers have their own page which describes the produce they are able to offer.  This is done by going to the ‘growers’ page, registering and filling in the appropriate forms, this is pretty obvious but here is a tip.

We are anxious to encourage growers to offer speciality plant which have specific benefits but may not be widely available or even known.  For example plants, such as the first fleet lettuce and heirloom tomatoes are highly beneficial having good taste and loaded with nutrients but not commercially available as they have limited shelf life.

We are anxious to encourage growers to provide these specialist herbs and spices which may not be well known.

Many consumers will not be aware of these speciality plants so will not be searching for them specifically.  You will be asked to enter the species and variety of plants but you can also enter keywords which will help consumers find that plant.  These key words will be displayed to the consumer and can be anything which helps identify the plant such as the particular benefits.  These are examples of keywords which may be useful in helping the consumer find your page ‘iron, selenium, calcium, diabetes, arthritis, memory’.
