It seems these days that everyone is getting on the organic food bandwagon.
No longer is organic a buzzword reserved for guilty liberals and college
students. With its increasing popularity, organic foods are more available
in different types of communities, and with a slightly more affordable
price tag. There are many benefits to be had in keeping an organic diet.
For one, you can be fairly assured that there are no pesticides or other
chemicals or preservatives laced into your food. You also can usually
fairly easily track where your money is going and who it is supporting
after it exchanges hands between you and the checkout person at your
local market. Another great way to be even more sure that you have fresh,
organic, and cruelty-free produce is to buy from a local farmers market.
If you want to be completely assured of the freshness, quality, and
chemical-freeness of your produce, however, there is really only one
way to go. That step is, of course, to do your own organic gardening.
With the recent influx of community garden projects, it is easy to get
in on this kind of project, even if you do not have your own space for
gardening at home, or the startup knowledge to create your own organic
garden. A lot of cities have groups, or collectives that all chip in
a certain amount of money to secure a plot of land and supplies to begin
their garden. Each season, members of the collective chip in their dues
and spend time planting and tending to the garden. Each member, in exchange
for their dues and hard work, is ensured an entire season of fresh,
organic, chemical free fruits and vegetables.
With this system, not only do you get a massive amount of organic produce
for a very small amount of money, but you also are given the opportunity
to learn about how to successfully create your own garden. If you have
space on your own land, this is also a great way to learn about how
to create and nurture your own organic garden. Beginning with organic
seeds, the process of keeping an organic garden is fairly easy. Stray
from chemical based products and compost kitchen waste instead of purchasing
manure from a store.
Make sure that your garden has plenty of water and sunlight, and do
not resort to pesticides to get rid of pesky bugs. There are lots of
other tricks out there that do not compromise the integrity of your
final organic product. One of these tricks that works for beetles and
other large bugs, is to put a sweet wine in little jars around the garden,
with a top that is tapered so that they cannot escape once inside. The
beetles are attracted to the sweetness, but once inside drown in the
mixture. There are lots of other tricks of the trade that you will pick
up the longer that you tend to your own garden. The best part of all,
though, is enjoying your final result. A salad just tastes better when
you know you made it from scratch.
