Bali is experiencing a new revolution in organic growing! Local farmers are
increasingly aware of the impact & costs of using harmful chemicals and are
choosing to return to traditional farming techniques. A wider choice of healthy
organic foods is flowing into Indonesia's markets, inspiring new restaurants
and health food shops in Bali and Jakarta.
The reasons for going organic are many, including health, compassion,
preserving natural resources, and making better use of water and farm lands.
