Is vegetable gardening really the cheapest and best way to get organic foods? It was my question when first looking for a way to reduce my fresh foods budget.
There are two ways of obtaining organic products: (1) buying organic food products at the grocery store or farmers market, or (2) growing organic foods in your own garden.
1.Buying organic food products at the grocery store or farmers market was only the option for my family for the past 5 years as we lived in an apartment complex, without a garden.
Despite a significant price difference between organic and non-organic foods, we made the decision to consume only organic foods. We made this decision because of the three main benefits of eating organic foods: health, financial and environmental.
