What is Biointensive Growing?

Biointensive is a method of growing as much organic food as possible in the smallest amount of space. The method draws upon a variety of intensive agricultural methods practiced thousands of years ago in China, Greece and Latin America, as well as French intensive techniques practiced in the 1700’s and 1800’s, and Biodynamic techniques developed in Europe in the early 1920s.

The culmination of these techniques has developed into what is now called GROW BIOINTENSIVE sustainable mini-farming. It’s a method adapted to address the unsustainable nature of the global food system, which nearly all of us depend on.

The method was designed to provide food security for those who practice it, while continually building and developing the soil and conserving natural resources. The result is producing safe food year after year in the same small space.

Practiced in over 130 countries across the world, this method has proven that a complete diet can be produced by people in any climate where food can be grown, with very limited resources.
