Productive, safe gardening for home & community gardeners

Organic gardening is an approach to growing food, ornamentals, and native plants using a combination of traditional and scientific gardening techniques.

The principles of organic growing can be applied at any scale — from large commercial farms to container plants on your apartment balcony. Most community food gardens make use of organic gardening.

For home and community gardeners, organic growing is low-cost and safe. Organics avoids the possibility of gardeners contaminating themselves and the city’s waterways through the erroneous use of synthetic pesticides, fertilisers, fungicides and other biocides.
