Growing Food With Structured Water

Edible Landscapes, Food Forest Design, Food Forests, Permaculture

Watering a food forest seems simple. You just run a sprinkler or water with a hose. But it never comes close to how refreshed your tomatoes and squash look after a summer rain, does it? Rainwater refreshes, revitalizes, and grows plants better than any other water applied to a food forest because of its hydrating purity. There is a way to get this hydrating and pure water in your garden everyday with structured water – water that is just like rain – from your spigot. If you water your garden with structured water, your plants receive water that has the same hydrating benefits as rainwater every time you turn on your dripline, sprinkler, or hose.

Permaculture and biodynamics are both forms of “conscious farming,” that is, farming that takes into account not only commodity production, but also consideration of the effects of production on the land, on renewable and non-renewable resources, on neighbourhoods and on social and cultural values. In other words, this is farming that puts all the variables into the equation, not just the ones that serve the bottom line.

Why Do Plants Need Structured Water?

Structured water has always been present in nature: in rainwater, waterfalls, rivers, and living cells, including plants and animals. Structured water was actually identified when Dr. Gerald Pollack of the Pollack Lab at the University of Washington was studying water inside the cell. He discovered that water inside the cell was a gel-like substance with the molecular structure of H3O2 instead of H2O. This structured water, or H3O2, had an energetic charge, allowing it to move into the cell faster and be used more efficiently in the cell.

Unfortunately, water that comes through pipes and has had chemicals applied to it has had the hydrating energy and minerals taken out of water, making it “dead.” That’s why your tap water doesn’t help your plants thrive like rainwater does. This water is devoid of energy, making it harder for plants to get water into their cells because they have to use their own energy to absorb it. 

Even though structured water is considered a new technology, it has been tested all over the world with great results. There are scientific articles showing increased yield in wheat, radishes, and more, with less water needed to meet crop demand. Galt’s Landing has a structured water system for its food forest, installed by Analemma, which is a strategic partner with Food Forest Abundance.
