control along with planting plants that can benefit each other.

produced. Techniques like succession and companion planting are very
beneficial to this method of gardening.

death and decay are the principals
behind good nutritious soil. In the forest plants live and die.
Insects, worms and animals consume them and release nutrients back
into the soil. The nutrients are then consumed by plant life. There
is no need for chemical fertilizers in a natural environment. Nature
also has a way of controlling insects with natural predators and
Organic gardening is basically
the same as these natural cycles with one exception. When you
harvest the crops from your garden you are removing them and not
letting them decompose back into the soil as nature would have done.
So you will need to add organic materials back into the soil. This
can be done by simply composting.
It is a
comforting feeling to know that what you have produced in your
garden is both healthy for you and the environment. Whether you
build the home of your dreams in a rural country setting or an
suburban or urban area, organic gardening can be just as enjoyable
