Organic Garden Guide: Nurturing Nature

Why Organic Gardening?

Organic gardening eliminates the synthetic pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers. This promotes your health and your well being by not consuming these toxins and preventing long term health conditions such as cancer. 


Furthermore, if you buy a carton of regular strawberries and buy a carton of organic strawberries and soak them both in cold water in separate bowls. You will notice that the regular strawberries water color will be way darker than the organic strawberries. This happens because of all the pesticides coming off the strawberries. 


Now, not all fruits have to be organic but ones with high rates of pesticides which are mostly berries are recommended to be organic.
