The philosophy of true organic gardening stresses the importance of increasing the natural health of your soil, choosing the correct plants for your area and working with Mother Nature, not against her, to create a happy healthy garden.
What is Organic Gardening? Some people believe it is just a fad, and others believe having an organic garden is just too 'hippy'.

"The science and art of growing fruits, vegetables, flowers and ornamental plants by following the essential principles or organic agriculture in soil building and conservation, pest management and heirloom variety preservation"
