Most of us worry about the environmental degradation of our planet but wonder how we can help. Maybe we live in an apartment, as I do with no real green space. Maybe we have a pretty green yard bordered by flower beds and ornamental shrubs. Maybe we have imported flowers and plants that are not native to our area and are therefore hard to sustain.
So how do we contribute.
Jane Goodall has written a new book called Seeds of Hope, where she talks about sustainable foods and gardening.
Each one of us can contribute, in our own small way, and if we do so, then as a collective force we can help to turn around the degradation.
As I age, I realize that I will not be here forever, but I want to leave this earth a better place for my daughters, grandchildren and their future children.
So before I plant any pots on my patio this year I am going to do some research on what native plants I can use. I would like to use some plants that I can bring into the house next winter to enjoy on my windowsills. I am also going to wash out my dirty bird feeders and start feeding the birds again.
Do you practice any kind of sustainable gardening?
P.S. I have not been compensated for promoting this book. I just love what Jane Goodall does.
