What is an Organic Lifestyle and how is it connected to the school?

Living an organic lifestyle is living a balanced lifestyle. It begins with eating organic foods. Organic foods are fruits and vegetables grown without the use of chemicals, and meats processed without the introduction of hormones or closed factory environments. These are more healthy because chemical insecticides, herbicides, and fertilizers on vegetables and fruits have unknown effects on human health. They also can have a negative effect on the environment. Hormones in meats can and do survive the cooking process and can make a difference in the growth of children or the well-being of adults.

One of the best ways to ensure foods are organic is to grow them yourself. And this is what we do at the DDHA. Where ever possible we try to buy organic but sometimes the prices prohibit us but children know about and help in the process.
