As spring weather is here, it is time to start thinking about how you will expand your food-producing capabilities in your yard or garden in the coming year. If you have never produced your own food, perhaps 2022 is the year to give it a try! Organic gardening techniques are relatively easy to use and produce fresh, healthy food for your family from a surprisingly small footprint. With the help of a good landscape designer, you can create an organic garden that will help your family stay healthy and give you the satisfaction of producing food for yourself and those you love.

Organic gardening essentially relies on three elements:
Naturally, using all of these organic gardening methods takes time and effort. One reason people still rely on chemical garden protection and enhancement is because it is easier. However, the more we learn about the difficulties caused by chemical pest and weed control and chemical fertilizers, the more sense it makes to take the extra time and effort to use organic measures instead.
