There are two very important factors that pops into your mind when it comes to organic horticulture and that is environmental and health benefits. There is possibly no way that one cannot be benefitted from buying or growing their natural produce. Some of the benefits of organic horticulture are mentioned below:
Something that no one will want to compromise on is great taste. While most of the organically grown fruits and vegetables might not look as polished and uniform, it will definitely have a very superior quality taste that is fresh and gives a difference to the taste buds from the usual chemically induced vegetables and fruits in the markets.
Organic gardening in Australia is all about the chemical free environment in which they are grown. The fruits and vegetables will bear no toxic fertiliser residues, chemicals or other harmful substances that will enter the body when eaten. Studies also show that natural produce are rich in vitamin and minerals as they are naturally grown without any enhancing or modifying substances. This also ensures that you and your family are getting fruits and vegetables free from toxic substances. Furthermore, taking up organic horticulture as a hobby could also help work out your body and lose some calories as well as keep you stress free.
Instead of buying vegetables and fruits from the market where you are unsure of how they are grown, growing your own produce will save a lot of money and also any doubt about the quality of what you are buying. Organic gardening in your own backyard will also save you countless trips to the markets for buying perishables.
For most organic gardeners, this type of farming brings them closer to nature and acts as though it is a form of exercise. The whole process of planting seeds to taking caring of them till the harvest for most people would be like a meditation process that they enjoy doing and also brings a lot of self satisfaction.
As organic horticulture uses no artificial or synthetic fertilisers and pesticides, it does not run in to any risks of harming the environment by getting in to the drainage systems or air. This in turn does not put any of the fauna and flora surrounding at risk, even small animals, birds and insects are not subjected to any harmful substances. Since organic farming requires continuous building of soil with natural matter that is found in the soil itself, it also creates less soil erosion
