Start by building a healthy soil with compost. It encourages the beneficial microbes to do their job, which helps your plants thrive, creating more flavor and nutrition for you! Beautiful ladybugs help control garden pests and you never have to worry about a chemical residue in your food. Planting flowers or cover crops with your vegetables attracts important pollinators and insect eaters so your harvest will be bountiful.
When you buy or grow organic, you're choosing to improve the health of your family, community and planet by reducing the impact of chemicals on our environment. Together, each of our individual efforts can add up to make a big difference.
