Gardens differ from farms because they are usually smaller, non-commercial, and located near houses

Organic gardening is done without the use of synthetic (chemical) fertilizers or pesticides, usually with the idea of maintaining the garden as a healthy ecosystem.  Organic gardeners focus on garden health as a key to productivity, relying on composts and manures to maintain nutrients, and on crop rotation and integrated pest management to protect plants.
