Overall, though, most people who enjoy organic gardening report that the enjoyment they derive is paramount to their decision to eschew chemicals in favor of the all-natural route.
Many people like to watch the tender new growth come to full maturity and, as a bonus, you get to eat it!
In early August, 2001, the British organization, The Soil Association, reported that a comprehensive review of existing research revealed significant differences between organically and non-organically grown food.
These differences relate to food safety, primary nutrients, secondary nutrients and the health outcomes of the people who eat organically.
Vitamin C and dry matter contents are higher, on average, in organically grown crops than they are in non- organic crops.
Mineral contents are also higher, on average, in organically grown crops.
Food grown organically contains substantially higher concentrations of antioxidants and other health promoting compounds than crops produced with pesticides.
