Have you ever thought that there are so many Chemical vegetables in Cambodia?Well, I think it a yes because almost all farmers use Chemical for their Vegetable to grow faster even though they know that it’s really bad for people’s health, they don’t care!, They don’t care about that, the only thing they care about is them getting a lot of money or not. I know this is not a speech for whoever is reading this but I just want to tell you that using Chemical is bad and please care about other people’s health.
Household Garden is an Exploration where I learn about Vegetables that we can grow in each house. What do I want from this Exploration?. All I want is everyone has their own small garden in front of their house. During this exploration I went to two different types of farm one is an Organic farm in Takeo and another is Chemical farm in Saang. During the trip to Chemical farm in Saang I learn many reasons why people keep using Chemical for their vegetables, one interesting thing I learned was one of the farmers that use Chemical said “ Some people can tell whether it Chemical or not, but now farmers that use Chemical know a way that they can make the vegetables unnoticeable weather it uses Chemical”, There is a farmer that I interview and he said “In the future, I don’t think people will stop using Chemical”, from this sentence I notice that Chemical is now having a really big impact to farmers that make them want to use more and more even if they know it is bad. The Organic farm people taught me how to make Compost for the vegetables and they taught me how to grow vegetables in a better way. I think people in the Chemical farm don’t know much about Organic Fertilizer because when I ask them something that related to Organic they only talk about putting cow dung to their land.
After all, I want everyone to use Organic Fertilizer for their vegetables. If you care about your eating Chemical vegetables and affect your health but at least care about others. I know that growing vegetables are really hard to grow essentially but please try. I recommend everyone to have their small garden in front of their house because I think in the future we will end up buying only Chemical vegetables in the market and if you have your household you don’t need to care about eating Chemical vegetables. Unless you use Chemical Fertilizer for it.
