Welcome to the Better Than Organic Blog, hosted by 500 Foods. This is a blog focused on growing fresh produce using methods that might not fit the current criteria for "organic" but that are still useful nonetheless. For example, there are many viable hydroponic greenhouses. Aeroponic farms are not new. And our specific interest, container growing, is becoming more popular by the day. But none of these fit the traditional definition of "organic" for the simple reason that they don't use soil as part of their growing systems.
