The organic approach to gardening and farming recognizes that the whole environment in which plants grow is much more than the sum of its individual parts. It also recognizes that all living things are inter-related and inter-dependent.

Here are some of the features of organic growing:                                                      

Treating the soil and growing environment as a resource to be managed for future generations, rather than mined for short-term gain.

Providing plants with a balanced food supply by feeding the many creatures that live in the soil with composts, manures and other organic materials.

Combating pests and diseases without using pesticides that may prove harmful to human health and that of domestic and wild animals.

Encouraging and protecting wildlife, by creating suitable habitats.
Creating a safe and pleasant environment in which to work and play.
