During the past 30 years, we’ve seen a massive change towards homogenization and mechanization of farming. This change has focused more on using additives, synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, and mass-production techniques. All of these changes do affect humanity’s health and introduces more risks and why more people are starting an organic vegetable garden.
New diseases are popping up and spreading rapidly amongst humans and animals. When you get and read through the World Health Organization reports it shows how the use of chemicals and other products on food, along with the manufacturing processes, are posing a real threat to humankind’s health.
What are the benefits of starting an organic vegetable garden?
When you examine your location, you probably have space for a few pots. If you have a tiny piece of property, you could take steps to start and grow your organic vegetable garden. Today Dickerson Landscaping has seven healthy reasons for doing this.
Your homegrown vegetables will have no additives.
Research by natural food associations, agricultural scientists, and concerned nursery companies has shown that additives in our food can cause heart diseases, osteoporosis, migraines, and hyperactivity.
Pesticides or synthetic fertilizers don’t get used on organic vegetables.
Even though chemical products get used on plants to withstand weather conditions or plagues and always to produce a crop, they still affect the quality of the vegetables and remain poisonous to humans.
Your vegetables will not be genetically modified.
To increase, a crop’s size, antibiotics, drugs, and hormones get introduced into plants. The downside to this practice, vegetables lose their tastiness. So, instead of a hearty flavor, we end up eating and digesting the hormones that got used on the greens and potentially risking our health.
Eating organic vegetables, you grew, will be healthier for you and your family.
Your homegrown produce will not contain any of the products or chemicals mentioned above. Your greens and tubers will be much more natural than any ones you spot at the grocery store. You will also reduce your health risk because you know nothing foreign got added to your vegetables.
Your organic vegetables will be tastier.
With organic vegetables, your cooking gets enhanced, allowing their flavors to stand out. The use of antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, and synthetic fertilizers make plants grow unnaturally and subsequently reduces their hearty taste.
Organic vegetable gardening is ground cover friendly and responsible for the environment.
When you refuse to apply pesticides or other more significant or equally plant harming products on your vegetables, you eliminate damaging your soil or the air with the intrusive chemical ingredients.
When you grow organic foods, you are contributing to yours and the planet’s sustainability.
It’s no secret; small communities began when members in that small town or city started exchanging products that they grew naturally, thus helping to build a friendly and better place for us all.
In the end, eating organic products means there is nothing added to these plants than what they naturally need. As you can guess, additives, fertilizers, hormones, or pesticides are not components of naturally grown food. To better care for your health, start growing organic vegetables, enjoy their natural tastes, and don’t forget to get your pots from Dickerson’s Nursery, we have plenty to go around.
