Aaron John Sabu Posted over 1 year ago If Organic Food Is Too Expensive- Why Are You Not Growing Your Own ? Growing food in one's own garden is much more cheap and safer than the food we get in markets. By 'safer', I mean that most food items we get in the world (at least here, in India) have been anointed with pesticides like DDT(which India had forbidden), Endosulfan etc. If we don't use these dangerous poisons in our homely plants, then they are the best food items to eat. In South India, most people have at least a small vegetable garden where they have coconut trees, mango trees, jack fruit trees etc. I have two drumstick trees, many banana trees etc. And we just have t water them every evening. That's what costs us.
