Organic Fertilizer

Using organic fertilizer helps the environment. Chemical fertilizers can throw off the balance, even in your own private garden.

You probably associate the term organic with the lack of pesticide and herbicide use. But did you realize that one of the great things about organics is that they rely on organic fertilizer? Fertilizers made from chemicals can be extremely destructive to the local environment, especially to local water sources. But organic fertilizers work to feed the soil, provide all the necessary nutrients to plants, and don’t cause destruction and the pollution of the surroundings.

If you’re doing a bit of back-yard farming, try to use organic fertilizers for your own safety. There are many options, from creating a worm box and using the worm castings, to using peat or seaweed fertilizers to infuse the soil with all kinds of healthy nutrients. Creating organic fertilizer from your compost is another great way to re-use nutrients and close the loop on waste and consumption, right in your own backyard!

Even if you don’t make your own fertilizer, make sure to buy organic fertilizers so that you’re not putting the environment at risk. Plus, you probably don’t want to grow veggies in chemical fertilizers. Better safe than sorry; there’s no harm in learning about various fertilizers before incorporating them into your life.
