Are you a farmer? Perhaps you are someone who has your own garden and enjoy producing your own produce. Under both of these instances, you have likely heard about the trend of organic foods. You may have never considered organic fertilizer for farming though. Many farmers and gardeners use chemical fertilizers. This is mainly because it has been the norm for many years. You may have never considered how chemical fertilizers impact the environment.
You may have heard that a fully-written fire safety and prevention plan isn't strictly necessary for your small plant, construction, or agricultural operation. It's true that in some limited circumstances, OSHA doesn't mandate a written plan. However, it's still very important that you have one.
What Does OSHA Say About It?
OSHA strongly recommends all employers have an emergency action plan and a fire prevention plan. Of course, this is a recommendation, not a requirement.
You may have heard the myth about how garlic repels vampires, but did you know that garlic can also be used as an effective natural pesticide for your garden plants?

After all, you wouldn't want your children or pets exposed to toxins in your home or outside in the garden.
