Most vegetables and fruits that you buy in the super market, the market or even warung and restaurants have been sprayed with chemicals that are not good for eating unless they are cleaned very thoroughly. Even when we wash our food before preparing it to eat, the chemical sprays get inside the food and they get inside our bodies. This has long term affects on our health.
What about healthy and clean fruits and vegetables? Organic food is food grown with no pesticides, no herbicides, no chemicals. It is healthy food and tastes great. It is harder to manage the growing process without chemicals, especially pesticides.
We use natural pesticides from other plants like neem, daisy, eucalyptus. The can be put on or around food plants to stop them being eaten by pests but are not harmful to us.
Also, making compost is very important for plants grown in the ground as it works as a natural fertiliser and there is no need for chemicals.
