One of my goals is to garden in a way that causes no harm to our planet and its inhabitants. To this end, I use sustainable methods that ‘add to’ the earth rather than ‘taking away’ from it. These practices include using compost, applying fewer chemicals, conserving water, removing invasive plant species, and growing native plants. If you follow some of the earth-friendly gardening procedures that I describe, you will reap (pardon the pun) numerous benefits.
Your garden is your private space but it is also part of the world. Practicing sustainability is the right thing to do.
Thank you for your submission!
