3 Savvy Tips For Fighting Climate Change From Your Garden
By A.E. FEENSTRA
Grow Your Food
One of the most significant ways to fight climate change is to grow your own fruits and vegetables which will reduce the usage of plastic packaging and fossil fuels for transportation. A home garden also has less runoff from pesticides and chemical fertilizers.
Try Composting
Create your own fertilizer from food scraps to cut down on commercial processes that make fertilizer in stores. Homemade fertilizer is also one of the most nutritional options as it boosts the health of microbes living inside your garden’s soil — plus, it’s free!
Protect Pollinators
Increased year-round temperature and shifting rainfall patterns make it difficult for birds, bees, and butterflies to find food. Nourish these pollinators by having plants from early spring to late fall, and refrain from using harmful chemicals or pesticides.
