Why is organic gardening encouraged?

Organic gardening focuses on building healthy soil that can sustain healthy plants. Organic gardening encourages the natural balance between living organisms in the soil. It is also safer for pollinators, wildlife, pets, and humans. One way the City of Woodbury and Woodbury Thrives foster environmental wellness is by encouraging and supporting environmentally healthy gardening within our community.
