Organic Gardening is the way Nature intended its vegetables, herbs and fruits to be grown. Organic 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.
