An organic home garden will produce great-tasting, fresh ingredients that are not only more flavorful, but also healthier for you. For example, chemical-free soils have a higher nutrient content than soil that is chemically treated. That means organic food generally has a higher vitamin and mineral content than non-organic food. But don’t just take our word for it. There is plenty of research to back up this assertion.
According to a study published in the British Journal of Nutrition, organic crops and crop-based foods have anywhere from a 19%-69% higher concentration of antioxidants than their non-organic counterparts. This is likely due to pesticides that are used on commercially grown crops, which deplete the soil’s nutritional value.
any people today want to know where their food comes from. It’s important to know, for instance, that your food is both ethically and healthily sourced and grown. The term farm-to-table has become increasingly popular as restaurateurs and consumers bypass commercial producers and purchase food from its direct source. Similar to the farm-to-table process, you will have more control over your diet by using garden-to-table ingredients. Organic gardening has countless benefits, from supporting the local economy to simplifying the process of making delicious, healthy meals for your family.
