What is Organic Vegetable Gardening?

Organic vegetable gardening is a system of growing vegetables that promotes and enhances biological diversity. It is based on a minimal use of off-site inputs and on practices that restore, maintain and enhance ecological harmony.

Backyard, side yard, or even a front yard is a great way to start your own garden.

The two main reasons I grow organically are firstly because I believe it is healthier for me and secondly I believe it is better for our environment.

There is more and more concern about where our food is coming from. Growing your own vegetables is definitely a way to calm any worries you may have. By growing your own food you have total control over how, where and what you grow.

Using organic methods are safe for us, our environment and vegetables can be easily grown in all climate conditions and in all sizes of gardens.

Principles of organic vegetable gardening:

  • methods used to enhance and harmonize with nature
  • produce high quality tasty vegetables
  • maximize productivity in your garden site
  • improve and nourish garden soil through crop rotation, green manures and organic materials
  • recycling waste by composting
  • protects the environment by not using harmful chemical pesticides, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers and antibiotics
  • promotes health and well being of farm animals
  • prohibits seeds made from genetically modified organisms(GMO)
  • promotes healthy use and care of our water resources

Healthy soil is the foundation in organic gardening. Here is a list of organic materials that you can use in your own garden.

I grow vegetables because I am always inspired to see a tiny seed grow into a tasty fresh veggie and I love to eat them too. My favorites are just picked shelling peas, green beans, corn on the cob and fresh crispy salad greens.

To help you with your own vegetable garden plans I have written several ebooks. In them you will find easy to follow diagrams on where and when to plant a vegetable garden for raised beds, row gardening and square foot gardens.

We are all concerned about our health and well being.  Choosing to grow our food organically in my opinion is one of the best ways to keep ourselves healthy. 

Gardening can keep us fit and mentally healthy, having fresh pesticide free food will keep us physically healthy.  Enjoy your garden.
