Organic farming involves the nourishment of the soil, ultimately leading to the nourishment of the plants, and by not using any synthetic pesticides to grow the plants, it’s better for our health to consume only these types of plants.
If you live in a house, take advantage of your garden and grow organic food in it, because as you will see in the following lines, there are numerous benefits related to growing your own organic food.
Tastier food and more nutrients
If you ever wondered why chefs in respectable restaurants use only organically grown foods in the preparation of their dishes, wonder no more, because the answer is very simple – organically grown foods taste better! This is all due to the fact that there are no synthetic pesticides used in their growth, therefore they taste as they should without being contaminated by chemicals that alter their taste and smell.
Another great reason to grow organic food is that it has more nutrients than food grown with synthetic pesticides. In organic farming, you nourish the soil for it to lead to the nourishment of the plants, and finally to the nourishment of your body, not spraying the plants that you ingest with harmful chemicals.
You save money
Hundreds of dollars are spent by the average person every month in the grocery store on foods that could be grown in the garden, and it’s a shame to waste your hard worked money on foods that are contaminated and that don’t even nourish you.
The expenses of growing your own organic food are minimal, all you need being led grow lighst to provide the plants with the sufficient amount of light for the process of photosynthesis, and compost to feed the plants. Therefore, keeping in mind that compost is free, your only actual expense in organic farming are the led grow lights, and they aren’t a big investment themselves either.
Keep chemicals away from your plate
Unfortunately, many pesticides were approved for being used on plants before being tested if they could lead to serious diseases like cancer and diabetes, leading even to genetic mutations, birth defects, and nerve damage, and the scary truth is that 90% of all fungicides, 30% of all insecticides, and 60% of all herbicides are carcinogenic.
By growing your own food, you get to control what goes and what doesn’t go into its growth, ensuring that the food you eat doesn’t present a danger to your health and that your meal isn’t filled with chemicals.
