Everywhere you go, there is always someone who is talking about organic foods and farming. With all the recent awareness in organic produce, it is no longer just for farms and small towns. Organic produce is making its way into the main markets and it is something we can definitely benefit from.
But why not take it a step further and grow your own? Not only will you know exactly where your produce comes from, you will also know how it was grown and always have it fresh.
Here are 4 reasons why you should grow an organic garden.
While you may find organic products in the market, growing your own will play a significant role in taste. Nothing is more delicious that the fruits of your labor when you cut fruits or veggies straight off the tree or vine.
Improve your health
An organic garden will ensure that your produce is free from toxic chemicals and pesticides as well as free to consume. Your fruits and vegetables will not have any residue left over from chemicals and will not risk entering the body. With organic produce, it is shown to contain higher amounts of vitamins and minerals than produce grown with chemical pesticides and fertilizers.
Saves you money
Growing your own organic garden will help save you money in the long run. Buying from the farmers market may sound like a great and easy idea to get organic produce, but it will end up costing 40% more than the regular market and if you were to grow your own. Keep in mind that you will also save money by visiting the store. Growing your own produce will enable you to preserve the excess produce and make your garden last all through the winter season.
Helps the environment
Organic gardening requires no use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. This prevents the spread of finding its way into our water supply and affecting the wildlife that drinks the contaminated water. By using organic waste as compost, you can reduce landfills and save space.
