Organic Gardening is the way Nature
intended its vegetables, herbs and fruits to be grown.
Gardening means gardening without the use of chemical pesticides,
herbicides, or fertilizers. By growing plants, especially those grown
for human consumption, gardeners get healthy, nutrient-rich fruits and
vegetables that promote health, rather than cause health problems.
Successful organic gardening, whether outdoors or indoors, is a bit more
time-consuming, but the benefits of eating fresh produce and avoiding
the short and long-term effects of the chemicals used in most commercial
produce production are more than worth it.
All About the Soil
grown in soil depend on it for all the air, water, nutrients, and
structure they need to grow strong and resist disease and pests.
Soil is your gardens foundation. Take care of your soil properly and
your plants will flourish and provide you with an abundant supply of
fruits and vegetables. Find additional information on our
Organic Soil page.
Weed and Pest Control
a non-organic garden, gardeners control insect pests and plant diseases
by applying a wide array of toxic chemicals, designed to kill the
insects or disease-causing organisms. The problem is that the
same toxic effects also affect humans, in one way or another. Sometimes,
the effects are small, but cumulative. The organic gardener uses
vigilance and other techniques, like hand picking of insects, special
organic washes to remove other pests, and companion plantings to repel
still others. The result can sometimes be produce that is slightly less
attractive than the perfect produce from chemical gardening, but that is
a minor concern. Organic produce has only good effects on the body,
while those perfect-looking veggies and fruits carry a toxic load of
chemicals. Find additional
information on our Organic Weed and Pest Control Page.
ideal soil needs only small amounts of fertilizer, and proper composting
of spent plants to be added back into the soil can keep your soil fresh,
healthy, and productive. Still,
there are times when your garden may need a boost to promote strong
foliage growth and a good crop. When the need for additional nutrients
occurs, there is a wide array of organic fertilizers and additives to
handle the job, without resorting to harsh chemical fertilizers.
