Guess what? You can grow your own organic vegetables in your own yard, or on your own patio, or even in your own garden — in pots! It’s a lot easier than you might think, too. Go to your local garden store and purchase pots first. It’s better to buy environmentally friendly pots like clay or wood. It’s important for the pot to have drainage holes in the bottom.
The next thing you need is organic soil. Most garden centers sell packaged organic potting soil. (Unfortunately, most of this organic soil is still being packaged in plastic, but we are working on that problem.) You might also check with your local organic farm. Sometimes organic farms sell organic soil and natural composted fertilizer as well.
