Introduction to Organic Gardening
Organic gardeners don't use synthetic fertilizers or pesticides on their plants and vegetables.
When you garden organically, you think of your plants as part of a whole system within Nature that starts in the soil and includes the water supply, people,
wildlife and even insects.
An organic gardener strives to work in harmony with natural systems and to minimize and continually replenish any resources the garden consumes.
