What is Organic gardening?
All organic gardening simply means is to grow our food without using any man-made products or chemicals to enhance the quality of our foods. Man-made products may consist of using synthetic fertilizer, pesticides, herbicides, or any other man-made product enhancers.
Organic gardening entails gardening using natural means without the influence of man-made products. So instead of using man-made products to enrich the soil that grows our vegetables, fruits, and herbs, simply create a compost pile to grow your produce in. This is carried out by using scraps from the kitchen such as leftover vegetables and fruit and allowing them to go through a process by which they can be reused.
