Eating healthy is not easy nowadays. On the dilemma side of getting better technology, we hope our food can still be nature to our children but the reality is the other way round. Excessive usage of pesticides, fertiliser and introducing of GMOs (genetic modified crops) have long been a controversial issue in public. Regardless, to cope with increasing demands and production rates, organic food is on the high-end verge of natural food.
As a hobby, some people love to plant a little garden in their backyard. It doesn’t makes you a huge supply chain of food however, but to add some fun as well as satisfaction. Since most of the areas are usually not over-planted and are providing with adequate nutritions, self made garden will usually produce higher value of organic food than those in the market. But the process is time consuming and too little food to feed the whole family.
If you live in a condominium, you may not have extra space for your gardening’s dream. For that, getting some indoor plants will make your house greener and livelier. There are a number of indoor gardening options in the market today. Instead of getting some fake plastic plants, which nobody likes, you can get yourself a smart herb garden that gives you the most natural organic food with little effort. It also double as a plant decoration, or food on the table.
