Ecological Gardening tips

The incorrect cultivation methods produce negative effects. For example:

  • The massive use of insecticides, herbicides and fungicides, has an impact in the environment and there is a risk both for people and animals
  • The excessive usage of water during the watering, specially in areas where it's a scarce resource
  • The usage of nitrates (highly soluble fertilizers) that get into water streams and pollute them
  • The great amount of vegetable waste that are incinerated of are taken to dumps without being correctly disposed
These and other concerns take us to think and create a new concept: ecological gardening. What we try to do with this is build gardens and maintain them in a racional and respecful way towartds the environment.
The ecological gardening tries to save water, fertilizers and other products and other elements. It encourages methods to help conservation of the environment. and health.
