Moreover, in order to have a natural organic garden, you need to provide a lot of fertilizers from natural resources rather than the ones that integrates chemicals form it. This type is friendlier for plants and animals especially earthworms, insects, bacteria and fungi that use organic matter for food which prepares it for live vegetation.
Adding chemicals into fertilizer are prone to harm and endanger living organism in the soil. Therefore, a proper program of recycling the soil by utilizing more natural fertilizer will help it to recuperate the same ingredient that was coming originally from the soil itself. Thus, the soil will maintain its originality and will continuing the cycle to help other living vegetations to grow healthier.

Thus, when buried under ground with a proper condition, it will make it easier for the bacteria to decompose into humus.

It’s all about the cycle, as long as you don’t destroy the chain, the whole mechanism will live harmoniously. The result, these living vegetations that we consume from our own vegetable garden will be fresher and more nutritious.
