Why Organic?

You can save time and money with organic methods.

YOU have control over everything you grow in your garden.

Spraying toxic chemicals on your garden is time consuming, expensive, and not kind to ‘Mother Earth’.

I.P.M uses the least toxic methods to control a pest. This includes plant diseases as well as insect pests.

  • Americans have growing concerns.

  • There have been many recalls because of E.coli and other pathogens on our produce.

  • Our honey bee and other pollinators are at risk.

  • Our clean drinking water is threatened.

  • The fishing industry is being threatened.

  • Even small changes can make a difference.

  • Our children and pets are safer in an organic garden.

  • Man made chemical insecticides kill beneficial insects as well as pests.

  • Over use of man made fertilizers destroy beneficial micro and macro soil organisms.

  • Man made fertilizers cause a build up of salt in the soil.

  • Constant use of man made chemicals destroys soil tilth.

  • Man made chemicals can harm us, our children and our pets.

  • ADD COMPOST!!!

  • Compost is free.

  • Compost feeds the soil.

  • Compost attracts and supports beneficial soil organisms.
