Natural Eco Organic Gardening

 

 When we think of gardening, we usually think of hard work. Why? Because it involves a lot of digging, planting, spraying for pests, weeding, rotating crops, watering, fertilizing and the lists goes on.

Imagine not having to do all of this but instead, having a beautiful garden that virtually looked after itself, while growing your own organic food.

 How about a beautiful, healthy organic garden that did not have pests, did not have any need for rotation of crops, and had very little weed growth. It would require very little water and to top it off, it would produce much more than the traditional garden while regenerating itself every year.

Let's face it, gardening can be hard work. Planting, digging, weeding, fertilizing, rotating crops and the list goes on and on.

But imagine not having to do all of this but instead, allowing nature to help produce a garden that will regenerate itself year after year and you can enjoy gardening. Growing a beautiful organic garden without all the fuss is possible.

You could have a garden that requires very little water, no need for crop rotation, very little weed growth and no pests.

You are probably thinking that there is no such thing but you're wrong and the answer is in nature itself.

Natural ecosystems are diverse and they are very healthy. They do require any human intervention. By taking the same natural laws that is found in nature itself and applying them to gardening we can reproduce the same results.


A good thing to do when planting an organic garden is diversification. No plant row after row of class - no, the planting of several. Harmful insects are usually interested in a large number of two plants in one area, putting them at random and the other plants that help prevent them.

If you must use organic or natural pesticides, be sure to choose one that targets your specific problem. Some organic pesticides will kill bacteria and others will kill harmful pests.

How Would You Like to:

  • Create a garden that regenerates all by itself, year after year 
  • Fertilize your garden for free using waste from your household 
  • Grow food that you can harvest every single day of the year, no matter where you live 
  • Set up a garden that NEVER needs digging 
  • Set up a garden that naturally REPELS PESTS 
  • Set up a garden that has virtually NO WEEDS 
  • Grow food in any soil, ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD 
  • Collect your own SEEDS 
  • Grow vegetables and fruit ORGANICALLY 
  • Grow more food than you need and sell the excess 
  • Produce food in the world's most environmentally and ecologically friendly way

Ecological Gardening- what is it?

by Jonathan White B.App.Sci. Assoc. Dip.App. Sci.

The term Ecological Gardening seems to be gaining popularity. But what is it? My experience with Ecological Gardening started many years ago. You see, I have always been a fence sitter. As a teenager I could never make my mind up whether I wanted to be a horticulturist or an environmental scientist. And sometimes I’m still a little unsure!

Fortunately, I have been able to gain qualifications in both. My specialty is in growing food using ecological principles. But I’m not talking about some sort of alternative hippie technique. I’m talking about sound scientific principles.

In my experience, the study of natural ecosystems will reveal everything we need to know about growing food. Natural ecosystems are generally diverse and there are a number of intricate interdependent relationships occurring between the living and non-living components at any given time. Put simply, each component relies and benefits from its interaction with other components. They fuel up on each other, causing the system to be able to sustain itself. If one part of the system gets ‘out of whack’, the whole system is affected.

When studying a natural ecosystem, such as a diverse pristine rainforest we find that there are many living components co-existing in a given area. Each of these components occupies a niche space. If a component, let’s say a plant, is removed by an animal eating it, we are left with an empty niche. An empty niche provides an opportunity for another life form to fill the space. In natural ecosystems, nature does not tolerate empty niche spaces. Once the niche becomes available, there will be a whole host of willing opportunists ready to fill that space. Dormant seeds, sometimes decades old, will spring to life and quickly try to occupy it.

The same thing happens when we are trying to grow food. In any agricultural practice, such as a vegetable garden, there are always empty niche spaces. And remember, nature doesn’t tolerate empty niche spaces. So weeds will try to fill the empty niche spaces. Weeds are very good niche space fillers. They are the ultimate colonizing plants. So as we can see there is no difference in the way nature works, whether it is in a pristine natural ecosystem or a vegetable garden.

Ecological Gardening aims to create a system where nature works for us, and not against us. It is actually quite easy to have a weed-free vegetable garden. You simply do one of two things. Firstly, you avoid having empty niche spaces. And secondly, you make sure there is something desirable to fill niche spaces, should they become available. That’s just one simple example, but Ecological Gardening can easily prevent a number of problems from ever arising.

My experience with Ecological Gardening has been phenomenal. I have been able to combine natural weed management, soil ecology, pest ecology and crop management into a very simple and easy method. In fact, I have been able to create a garden that requires very little attention and produces far more than a traditional vegetable garden, simply by applying sound scientific principles. And from the incredible results that I have achieved, I can say, with absolute certainty, that Ecological Gardening is the way we will be producing food in the future.
