The organic garden in Siena’s countryside
The return to nature
The organic garden, originally born as a trend in the wake of the rediscovery of green values, has now become a real necessity for those who want to know the exact origin of the food on their table. The beautiful countryside of Siena, with its green hills, covered with vineyards, olive groves, lavender and rosemary plants, is the ideal landscape for setting up an organic vegetable garden where you can grow vegetables such as lettuce, tomatoes, carrots and zucchini, without using chemicals and pesticides, which may be harmful for your health. In order for vegetables to grow in a flourishing way without the use of artificial substances, it is important to take care of the soil, making it fertile in a natural way, avoiding water stagnations that could lead to the proliferation of harmful parasites for plants and respecting the sowing calendar.
How to better use nature’s resources
Caring about what we eat, taking care of earth’s products at various stages of growth, from sowing to harvest, is a real choice of life that rewards with well-being those who make it. Learning to maintain a organic garden, or to choose only products derived from this kind of natural cultivation, has a number of advantages, beginning with saving on water, fertilisers and chemicals used. The countryside surrounding the city of Siena turns into a land full of potential for those who want to find a direct link with nature, starting from what is sown and consumed. Thanks to the use of natural cultivation techniques, organic garden products are rich in vitamins, minerals and nutrients that make their contribution to the daily diet irreplaceable and valuable.
