Organic gardening – we have been hearing this word for quite sometime now. Do we really know about it in detail? If not it is high time we should know about it.
Organic gardening is the latest trend and is catching up fast among a majority of people because of its immense positive aspects.
Plants that are grown organically do not face the problems of pests as these organic materials also acts as effective pest controllers. Though this concept is catching up only now, it has been practiced for many centuries.
Chemical fertilizers came into the picture to replace the organic fertilizers but with the trend of gardening close to the nature we have realized that chemicals cause harm to the soil and environment.
There are many positive facts associated with growing plants in an organic way, as the plants grown this way are richer in nutrients compared to the chemical aided growth.
Chemical aided vegetable and fruit may look better but surely all of you know that they are not healthier compared to organically grown ones.
Many researches have been conducted in order to find out which of the two forms of ferticizing is superior in terms of quality and nourishment.
Studies have proven that children who eat organically grown plants and crops have a lower level of pesticides in their body compared to the ones consuming products and vegetal food obtained from traditional method.
We may consider the “organic talk” just talk but changing the way we garden is not a change for the sake of change.
The many studies are nothing but the way of looking for a more developed and smart gardening plan, both sustainable and healthy hence gardening can surely be made better with an organic “facelift”.
Another plus with organic farming is that you don’t have to play-around with harmful chemicals all the time. Chemical fertilizers can cause great harm to those who are in contact with them regularly over a long period of time.
Organic farming will give you the safety and satisfaction of gardening with absolutely no unpleasant side effects. Such gardening helps builds emotional fitness because knowing you are working to obtain a sure way into a healthy living may help you have fun while gardening.
Consider organic gardening a step in your personal evolution. Focus on the values hidden behind the process itself and see it as a way of doing your part in making a better world.
Organic is what organic does. Nothing is truer than this statement for I have seen gardening communities going organic for the sake of the challenge but also for the consciousness that the community is becoming better by this action.
Organic gardening is first a will and an attitude, then a step into creating the safe food with the best taste possible and in the end a steady way to a steady income.
Yes. The organic food is more expensive. Can you guess why? The answer lies in the initiative. If we would consider practicing the organic gardening on a higher scale be sure the food will be cheaper and our society a lot healthier.
It is only up to us to try.
