Why You Should Try Organic Gardening
Maybe you are interested in organic gardening to enhance your healthy lifestyle. But you’re wondering, why are growing organic foods so important, what are their true benefits?
Well, for starters, you are giving yourself the gift of a satisfying and relaxing hobby. And it’s not just for you! You are giving your family the healthiest and purest foods available while giving back to the Earth as well.
Gardening organic vegetables, fruits, herbs, etc. means not applying pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers or artificial supplements. Okay, that might sound a little difficult, but really it’s not. It’s fun and a healthy way to get creative while learning about the natural world.
Just remember, Mother Nature has been gardening plants without anything artificial since the beginning of Earth. All you have to do is sustain the plan that has already been created.
Organic gardening reminds us that we are a part of something bigger and that our lives and choices are played out best when we follow the patterns that Nature has already designed for us.
Okay, if that’s not enough to get you interested, here are some other true benefits of Organic Gardening:
1. Producing food without pesticide, herbicides, or fungicide remains. Yuck! Why would you want your children to ingest those!
2. Producing food with intense, real flavors and shapes. Forget the perfectly shaped cucumber. Yours may have its own funky glitches, but it sure will taste perfect!
3. Producing food with more minerals and vitamins. If you color your garden and your diet, you may not even need a multivitamin.
4. Producing a garden that preserves and enriches the soil in your own backyard. You are giving back to nature by making her even healthier.
From my experience, there is no other hobby that can be as relaxing and benefitial as growing organic foods. Give it a try, and I think you will agree.
