We care for people, the planet & the future
We follow farming in harmony with nature by restoring the soil food web. Dia Elis proudly participates in Greece’s contributions to the global regenerative farming sector. We grow and nurture our groves while regenerating soil and preserving biodiversity, transforming barren soils into abundant ones, mindfully honoring the conservation of finite resources and the protection of the natural environment for future generations. Biodiversity is essential for clean air, fresh water, good soil quality and crop pollination. We commit to combating climate change by countering the adversaries of biodiversity which include deforestation, intensive monoculture, and desertification.
Contemporary sustainability science is rewiring our awareness of the inter-relationship of the species that collectively maintain the food web. Just as humans and many species are connected by a web of consumption, so is the soil made up of a web of giving and taking nutrients from one species to another. Regenerative farming takes responsibility for regenerating the soil biome, cultivating healthy balanced earth, support’s nature’s intelligence and smooth operating system.
We manage our crops according to all the rules of organic farming. We do not use chemical fertilizers and pesticides that disrupt the food chains of the local ecosystem, have a negative effect on the microbiome and the ion-exchange capacity of the soil and significantly pollute the underground aquifer. We use natural ways to enrich the soil of our olive orchards and to protect them from enemies.
The zones of use, like the residence, the gardens, the vegetable garden, the arable area and the zone in contact with the wild forest, create a gentle land management that respects the natural resources and the local biodiversity. Fruit trees and vegetables, decorative and aromatic plants, all these together with the olive trees create a unique ecosystem that neighbors the forest in which live many wild animals.
Our trees are all located in a single terroir. with a specific microcliamte. The organic cultivation in combination with Permaculture creates all the prerequisites for Regenerative agriculture. These practices allow our olive groves to maintain a very high biodiversity with a gentle management of natural resources against monoculture, water wastage and the use of pesticides to avoid diseases.
Sustainable development can only be achieved with the rational management of natural, human and economic resources. This way, the environment is not damaged and there are reserves for the next generations. The size of our olive cultivation, the gentle use of land and water, the zero carbon footprint and the enhancement of biodiversity make us look to the future with optimism.
