|Fernwood Botanical Gardens Early Spring|
I feel guilty throwing anything into the trash if it might be recycled in some way. Our junk mail gets shredded and goes into the compost. You wouldn't believe the rich soil our pile produces with all the kitchen scraps and yard waste. That rich soil goes right in to my raised beds (below) to grow our food. If you don't grow your own food put it on your flower beds. By growing your own food it saves in trips to the store. The benefits of eating organic and straight from the garden means more nutrient rich meals, and hopefully less trips to the doctor :). Once you start the ball rolling it's a win, win situation for you and the earth.
I just bought a new book "The Earth Handbook by Christine McCartney & Samantha Booth and I'll be sharing something you can do everyday for the rest of this year.
Just a reminder to all who signed up for our Terrium class- it's tomorrow night at 6PM. See you then!
HAPPY EARTH DAY 2014
