Organic gardening is gardening without synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Growing food organically supports the health of the whole system. It involves building healthy soil (ideally with your own compost), planting fruits and vegetables in season, learning to tell the difference between good bugs and bad bugs, and using non-toxic remedies for pests, diseases and other problems. Beginner gardeners may find organic gardening challenging, especially with Florida’s relentless summer heat, humidity, and pests. It’s still good for your health to eat more veggies from your home grown garden even if it’s not 100% organic. Or consider joining a community garden to learn how.
