Re: Why do you garden organically?

I used to be a chemist and spent a lot of time as a hazardous materials specialist.  I know too much about pesticides to be willing to use them on crops I plan to eat.

I think the using of synthetic petroleum based fertilizers need to be replaced by organic farming and gardening methods. However, I also think that Aeroponic farming /gardening has some benefits over organic. Aeroponic provide more protection from contamination than organic.   Aeroponic utilizes less water and space than organic.   Grow  Lights will extend the growing season.

Like Redwing, I just don't want any additional risks to my body from contact with inorganic chemicals in/on the soil touching my skin, being inhaled, etc., nor internally through the food I grow that is to nourish my body.  I already react to perfumes, scents (candles, cleaners) metals in jewelry, certain food preservatives and many medications, so I figure the less I'm exposed to stuff I don't have to be, the better!

I garden organically simply because it is a healthier lifestyle, the few chemicals you subject your body to the better off one will be.  That means not exposing oneself to chemicals to combat a problem to eating vegetables that haven't been treated with chemicals.  I feel exposure to chemicals can have consequences.  Also organic gardening can be less hassel in the long run as the plants seem to be healthier, making them stronger to ward off bugs and disease.  When you do organic gardening you feed the soil and nutrients become available to plants as needed.  Yes synthetic fertilizers can work but over a period of time the soil becomes sterile and pretty much defeat the purpose,  it is so important to amend the soil with natural materials.  With living in a short growing area I need to know I have the best shot at having a productive garden.
