This type of gardening also involves the use of soil management and testing, and sometimes the use of heirloom or other varieties of low-maintenance, naturally hardy seeds.
Fruits and vegetables that have been grown using organic, natural methods, provide healthy, edible sources of nutrition that are chemical free and nontoxic to humans and pets.
