Organic gardening started centuries ago when ancient civilizations would till the soil, plant their crops and then harvest them.  As the demand for foods increased, fertilizers or pesticides were used to help grow crops.  It was only later that people realized these pesticides were also being eaten. Which led to a campaign to return to organic gardening.
