Benefits of Kitchen Garden:
1. Fresh and Healthy Vegetables:
I also have my kitchen garden where I am growing Coriander, Mint, Beans, etc. Those vegetables and herbs are pure and organic. The taste is also very different which we bring from the market. Many farmers are using chemicals and pesticides which are not good for our health. Our body can be greatly affected by toxic chemicals but in our kitchen garden, we can get fresh and healthy vegetables at any time.
2. Clean Air:
Day by day, air pollution is increasing and it is one of the biggest global issues. Trees are cutting down and the result is fresh and clean air quality is deteriorating. Your kitchen garden will surely improve the air quality around you. The more you plant, the more fresh air with good oxygen you get.
3. Aesthetic Value:
Plants make your home greener which increases aesthetic value. Whenever you look at the garden, not only it will give you peace but also it improves your physical, mental and spiritual health. You will also feel some positive vibes within you and around you.
4. Kitchen Waste works as Compost:
You can use your kitchen waste as a plant fertilizer and compost. Kitchen waste will help your plants grow faster and you will get rid of wastes without throwing it in the garbage. It takes almost 5-6 months to make compost from wastes.
5. Kitchen Gardening as a Hobby and Habit:
I started kitchen garden as a hobby and don’t know when it was added as a part of my life. Now I maintain my garden and spend some time with my plants. This activity is now my routine. I cannot describe my feelings and emotion of my garden in words. I can say that spending my time with my plants is the best time pass.
