A healthy soil is one that is rich in nutrients and life, it is the building block of any organic garden. Soil is complex and a delicate ecosystem all in its own. A complex community of organisms, that convert a large variety of inactive organic materials into the essential nutrients plants need to thrive. Chemical fertilisers can destroy these organisms that provide the healthy, nutrient rich soil your plants need and pull you, along with your garden into a cycle of dependency.
The major principle of organic gardening is to feed the soil and let the soil feed the plants. Feeding the soil organic matter that it needs to support the complex community of organisms living in it naturally, working the soil and turning the natural minerals into nutrients that plants can benefit from.
Having a healthy, nutrient rich garden soil can have larger effects to the ecosystem. It supports life and a world all of it’s own. It is a place where plants can grow and thrive. These plants attract other life like insects, toads and birds that all work together keeping the environment in balance. The ecosystem in your own organic garden is a world of it’s own, and a health one when organic gardening practices are used.
Go Green in your yard and garden, be kind to nature. Organic gardening is a great way help improve the environment. It is a chemical free method that will help keep the air we breath clean and the water we drink safe.
