Let's take a closer look at the truth of sustainable gardening

What is sustainable gardening?

Sustainable gardening is a gardening method that does not use harmful pesticides, while encouraging continuous harvesting of plants. This means that much less agricultural products are purchased, because crops will continue to regenerate every season, while eliminating any harmful chemicals commonly used in pesticides.

By doing so, gardeners have greatly reduced their impact on the environment, become more self-sufficient, and directly grow most of their own food from home.

Why should we consider sustainable gardening?

Many people question whether sustainable gardening can make a difference. How much positive impact does the habits of individual gardeners have on the environment?

In fact, quite a lot!

People often ignore the impact of buying fresh agricultural products on the environment. Some people go to shops to buy their fruits and vegetables without thinking too much about the way they are grown or distributed throughout the country.

The fact is that many of these products are grown in greenhouses, transported for hundreds of kilometers, and stored in plastic.

All of these have an impact on the environment, so you are actively reducing your carbon footprint by growing agricultural products at home rather than buying too much from the grocery store. Now imagine every Canadian doing this – the impact will be huge.

In addition, sustainable gardening has many benefits for individuals. You can spend more time outdoors breathing fresh air, get the satisfaction of growing food, and feel good, because you are doing your part to help the environment.

In addition, the taste of freshly grown food is incredible, and you may save a lot of money in the long run!

For beginners, the idea of proper gardening can be intimidating, so we always recommend starting with a simple place - raised garden beds.

Whether you lack space or do not have an experienced green thumb, we strongly recommend that you use a raised garden bed garden. This is the process of using elevated beds to grow crops throughout the season.

This is ideal for sustainable gardening because raised garden beds provide flexible growth conditions. You can plant any seasonal crop you want, alternating crops throughout the year to ensure that something is always growing.

In addition, garden beds make it easier to grow fruits and vegetables because you can better control the growth conditions. These conditions also make it easier to prevent nuisance such as weeds and pests.

Therefore, sustainable gardening methods (such as not using pesticides) are more feasible for gardeners because of garden beds and gardens.
