Alamar's Organiponico is an Important Urban Farm!
In Alamar, I learned firsthand from this urban farmer about how to use a combination of bio-pesticides, crop rotations, compost, fertilizer, and cover cropping to help increase the bio-diversity and crop output. Alamar's organic farm is an important example of how to use bio-pesticides and natural plant-life to combat insect pests and resistant plant varieties is critical to maximizing the production on a farm.
