The Principles of Organic Gardening

 

There are many reasons why you should learn organic gardening principles. Maybe you want to start a garden, but you don’t want to make a big impact on the environment. Maybe you want to change your current garden for the better. You can even put some delicious, organic fruits and vegetables on your table. No matter what your motivations are, you should always consider certain things when building a garden.

The goal of your organic garden should be to put out as much produce while using as little outside resources as possible. According to organic principles, this means that you should not buy any nutrients, fertilizers, or pesticides from the store. It’s even better to avoid using water from your hose, and instead gather rain water. Instead, you should try to use your resources as best you can to create a healthy crop. It’s a bigger challenge, but it’s worth it in the end.

Instead of throwing away vegetables and other food waste, you should start a compost heap. This is, by far, the best way to manufacture your own nutrients for your garden. You will find that there is no shortage of material to add to your compost heap. When you mow the lawn, put all of the clipped grass into the heap. Put all of your food waste into the pile. Once it’s hot and ready, you can spread it on your garden and watch the plants flourish.

Some people take organic gardening to the next level, and have chickens roam their garden. Chickens are surprisingly easy to sustain. They spread helpful manure for you, and you will probably never have to buy chicken feed. For food, the concept of the “maggot bin” is popular. Everything you can’t put into the compost heap – such as leftover meat products and dead varmints – for example, if you kill a rabbit that has been eating your vegetables. You place it all into the maggot bin, and within a few weeks it’s full of huge, scrumptious maggots that you can feed your chickens.

With these systems in place, almost none of your leftovers are put to waste. You simply have to start thinking along the lines of saving all of the nutrients you can, and converting them into energy that your garden can use to grow healthy, delicious fruits. It’s a cheaper way to maintain a garden, it’s healthier for the environment, and it creates better, more natural products.
