Organic Gardening is Green Gardening

Organic Gardening is Green Gardening!

What is organic gardening? And can it really help us towards a greener lifestyle?

If you are interested in green living and you are lucky enough to have a garden - or even a back yard - then gardening organically is for you!

What's here?

This section of the Greenfootsteps looks at why organic gardening is so environmentally friendly and explores some methods of "green" gardening.

Even if you still use the occasional chemical fertiliser, there are still lots of ways in which you can make your garden greener - both literally and environmentally speaking!

First, a little about organic gardening and why it is more environmentally friendly.

Organic gardening is fun and quite easy too

A garden which is eco-friendly is a delight at any time of the year. It is buzzing with life and activity and you know that you are doing a bit towards the health of the planet. If you want to do more "green living", try organic gardening!

Gardening using organic methods is not particularly hard. If you take advantage of well-adapted species and use plenty of good old-fashioned gardening techniques you can have a thriving, lovely garden in a shortish time.

Yes, it does take time... but it's enjoyable, relaxing and healthy exercise in the open air. And you may feel inspired to and so cut down your food miles!

Gardening for wildlife

Many species of birds, animals and insects rely on being able to travel and find suitable habitats as they go. They use places such as gardens as stop-overs on their journeys between their more permanent bases.

As humans make it their business to colonise and ‘own’ more and more of the earth’s surface, many species are increasingly being squeezed out. Many creatures find themselves marooned in areas of their natural habitat which are cut off from other such areas - cut off by roads, houses, urban sprawl, building sites or industrial complexes.

Communities of wildlife – butterflies for example, get more and more stranded in small communities so finding a mate, or even enough food to live and breed becomes a problem.

This is where we come in.

By making our gardens and back yards friendly to wildlife we can help struggling populations of birds, insects and small animals...
