Organic gardening is much more than simply avoiding the use of chemicals in your garden. For many people, it is a vision of living using the laws of nature to grow their fruits, vegetables, and other plants in a natural way. This is usually a personal choice made in the light of much research conducted on the importance of diet in relation to our health and longevity.
Studies have shown that organic foods have higher concentrations of vitamins and minerals than those grown using chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides. Organically grown fruit and vegetables are not only better from a health point of view, but also avoid accidental exposure to those chemicals that are used in large-scale commercial agriculture, so common in today’s world.
1. Healthy soil – This is probably the most basic aspect of any organic garden. Healthy soil that is naturally replenished will grow healthy food year after year. Organic fertilizers such as manure and composted garden, courtyard and kitchen waste are easily recyclable in the earth creating soil rich in nutrients that will make any type of healthy plant grow.
