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.
