Organic Gardening is an often-heard term but what does it really mean? It's the science and art of growing things "...that sustain the health of soils, ecosystems and people. It relies on ecological processes, biodiversity and cycles adapted to local conditions, rather than the use of inputs with adverse effects. Organic agriculture combines tradition, innovation and science to benefit the shared environment and promote fair relationships and a good quality of life for all involved." — International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements
