Organic Gardening

Before the second World War, almost every gardener was an organic gardener. As various parts of the world began to suffer food shortages, chemical companies stepped in bringing along with them chemical fertilizers and pesticides to increase crop output and help alleviate the crisis. That they did until they began to cause more harm than good–aquatic pollution, erosion, pests mutating and becoming immune to chemicals, etc. Also, more and more people have become aware of the fact that they are ingesting significant quantities of dangerous chemicals which have been suspected to cause various disorders. Because of this, interest in organic gardening grew and it continues to grow to this day.
