Fruits and Roots: The Benefits of Organic Gardening

Organic gardening has many benefits. Most importantly, it is designed to work with the ecological systems and minimally disturb the Earth’s natural balance. 

Healthy, nutritious, and chemical-free produce is one of the most obvious advantages of the organic gardening. However, there are other, more invisible benefits of organic gardening. One of them is healthier soil, which in turn, makes organic gardening more resilient and therefore more suitable for producing healthy vegetables, fruits, and roots. 

At Reston Farm Market, we are committed to our deep-rooted values of bringing fresh, locally sourced organic produce, dairy, and organic gardening products to our local community in Northern Virginia and beyond.
