With those statistics, creating a nutritional garden environment is an ideal way to clean, healthier eating. There is a wide selection of fruits and vegetables that can be grown, the only decision should be what location to plant a garden for a backyard gardener. Consumers need to stop paying the high cost that comes with buying organic fruits and vegetables and grow a healthier backyard garden. Backyard gardening offers more benefits than organic farming because of the growing techniques, cost associated with organic farming, and the nutrition value. Gardening is not a new concept and has been around for thousands of years.
The selection of algae strain to be used in wastewater treatment is determined by their robustness against wastewater and by their ability to grow in and to assimilate nutrients from wastewater . Chlorella, Scenedesmus, Neochloris and Spirulina are the widely used algae species in experimental studies of wastewater treatment. The major advantages of using microalgae over conventional methods as summarized by De la Noüe (1992)  are: (a) nutrients can be removed more efficiently; (b) no generation of toxic by-product (sludge) (c) biofuels can be produced from biomass harvested (energy efficient); (d) cost–effective. 2.2 Mechanisms of nutrient and heavy metal removal Nutrient removal by algae involve... ... middle of paper ... ...l density. The major advantage of autotrophic growth condition is that it can reduce carbon dioxide to make useful organic compounds.
Types of Organic Farming Bio-farming Bio farming is a chemical free method of farming that focuses on improving the microbiology as a way of increasing plant growth and produce yield. It includes techniques like crop rotation, green manure and biological pest control. Bio farming is sustainable farming. Increase soil fertility's and safe human, animal health; improve grain quality, safety for lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere.  Why Bio Farming?
A wastewater garden is a garden made up of specially chosen plants and soils that can dispose of our harmful wastes in a totally non-harmful way. The way it works is all of the greywater from washing machines, showers, tubs and sinks will drain into a holding tank, where the small amounts of oils are separated out. Blackwater from toilet waste can also go into the tank given proper treatment first. The wastewater is then pumped into the garden where the plants will essentially eat, drink and breathe away the contaminants found in the wastewater. Certain kinds of plants "purify" the contaminants into useful energy while clean water evaporates.

Additionally, an abundance of food can be grown in a relatively small space. Aquaponics systems are suitable for a wide variety of fish and plant species. Aquaponic growing centers can be built nearby places that sell food, thereby reducing the distance that food has to be transported. First of all, it removes fertilizer and chemicals from the agricultural process. The fish waste acts as a natural fertilizer for the crops, instead.
FSustainable crop production is in contrast to industrial crop production, G which generally relies upon monocropping (growing only one crop in a large area of land), intensive application of commercial fertilizers, heavy use of pesticides, and other inputs that are damaging to the environment, to communities, and to farm workers. In addition, sustainable crop production practices can lead to higher yields over time, with less need for expensive and environmentally damaging inputs. FSustainable crop production is a way of growing or raising food in an ecologically and ethically responsible manner. FThis includes adhering to agricultural and food production practices that do not harm the environment, that provide fair treatment to workers, and that support and sustain local communities. FSustainable crop production is in contrast to industrial crop production, G which generally relies upon monocropping (growing only one crop in a large area of land), intensive application of commercial fertilizers, heavy use of pesticides, and other inputs that are damaging to the environment, to communities, and to farm workers.
The humus created can be added to soil to keep plants healthy, boost plant growth and suppress disease and pests. The humus created can reduce the need for chemical enhancements in gardens. The humus is organic and is a great supplement to fertilizer that is not. Maintaining an at home composting system is a great way to reuse food scraps or recyclable products. Instead of leftovers food being taken to landfills, they can be used in a compost system.

Long-term I am committed to installing new energy efficient windows to truly reduce energy consumption. To help reduce the family’s water consumption we recently installed an energy efficient washing machine that uses over 60% less water than the previous model that was installed. As an additional means in which to help conserve water I will be installing a rain barrel in the summer to water our outdoor plants.
