The Organic Backyard
A guide to applying organic farming practices to your home or community garden. Growing organic food enables you to eat and share the most authentic form of local food possible while actively contributing to the health of our ecosystems. In this guide, we have taken the key elements of organic farming principles and practices as contained in the Canadian Organic Standards, and have made them more user-friendly for you, the gardener.
Although coined The Organic Backyard, the content is intended to reach all growers of food on a small-scale — either at home, in community gardens, across urban backyards, at schools or in parks and reclaimed urban land.
