Organic gardening means growing plants without using any harmful chemicals and genetically modified seeds. 
Importance of organic gardening at home is not limited to growing healthy foods for our daily meals. It goes beyond that.

Organic matter like compost builds healthy soil with naturally occurring nitrogen, phosphorus, and other essential nutrients.

When rain water flows over garden soil and runs into nearby lakes, ponds, or ground water, it does not carry any chemicals to pollute water bodies.
