Organic Gardening Systems

There are dozens of techniques out there that can be used in organic gardening. By combining different techniques we create different organic gardening systems. Certain organic gardening systems tend to be more specific than general organic standards. Here are few types of organic gardening systems:

Biodynamic agriculture – This method, created by Rudolf Steiner, treats soil fertility, plant growth and livestock care as ecologically interrelated tasks, emphasizing spiritual and mystical perspectives.
No-till farming – This is a way of growing crops or pasture from year to year without disturbing the soil through tillage.
French intensive gardening – This is a method of gardening in which humans work with nature to foster healthy, vibrant plants with smaller space and less water than traditional gardening.
Biointensive agriculture – This is an organic agricultural system that focuses on achieving maximum yields from a minimum area of land, while simultaneously increasing biodiversity and sustaining the fertility of the soil.
