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.

Let's Talk About Mulch

Every gardener knows the benefits of a mulch. Applied to the surface of the soil it helps to retain soil moisture, regulate soil temperature, suppress weed growth, and simply makes your garden look beautiful.

Mulch can be applied to the soil surface, around trees, paths, flower beds, and vegetable growing areas. It is also used to prevent soil erosion on slopes and in production areas for flower and vegetable crops. It is recommended to have two inches in depth of mulch.

As you are getting your garden ready for spring, it is important to pick the right kind of soil and mulch. We have a great mulch and soil sale at the Reston Farm Market. Stop by and get as much as you need!

The Reston Farm Market is opened every day from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. We look forward to seeing you there!
