Farming for Cleaner Air

Healthy Soil Healthy Air Healthy Earth

At Foxhollow Farm, we are dedicated to the holistic practice of biodynamic farming. Biodynamic farming is centered around the belief that all aspects of the farm’s ecology are innately connected – healthy animals benefit the soil, healthy soil benefits the plants, and healthy plants benefit the air.

Recently, Foxhollow Farm partnered with Kentuckiana Air Education (KAIRE) to learn some tips to improve air quality in our everyday lives. One of the easiest ways to lower your carbon footprint is by following the 10 second rule!

  • When idling in the parking lot or drive thru for more than 10 seconds, turn your car off to use less fuel and reduce pollution. Count to ten, car off then!
  • Drive less by combining and planning out your errand routes.
  • Take it easy. Driving smoothly at a constant speed can save gas and help the air.

With Biodynamic farming practices and doing our part by following KAIRE’s tips, like being idle-free, we can join together to strive for cleaner air.
