Top 5 benefits of organic gardening

Soil is the most important element in a water efficient and organic garden. It’s a living entity and should be teeming with earthworms, beneficial fungi and bacteria. Soil should smell good and feel moist and crumbly.

When you garden and farm organically you’re prohibited to use synthetic pesticides, herbicides and fungicides, but it’s nice to know you can use more than just cow manure to achieve healthy and nutrient dense soil!

It’s simple – the more nutrients available in the soil the more the plant can absorb.  Great for all year round plant health and for us when we eat it. With good quality soil and water, we can grow good quality food.
