If you already have a garden, then go you! You're already doing something great for the environment by growing your own food. Have you ever wondered though, how you can make your garden even more environmentally friendly?
Having your own garden is a great option for people who cook at home a lot. You can grow your own vegetables, fruits, and herbs. This not only makes it so you can spend less money at the grocery store, but it's more sustainable to eat food you grow yourself because it reduces demand for food to be imported from other areas. It also tastes better! Home-grown tomatoes tend to be sweeter than the ones you buy at the store!
There are a few ways you can boost the green in your garden, though. If you collect rainwater, you can use that to water your plants in the summer instead of using up groundwater. This helps in many ways, but one way is you save water which in turn saves you money because you don't have to use the hose every day. There are also many ways you can recycle items you use daily (like milk jugs) while helping grow your garden. Read on to see the full list of ten tips to make your garden more eco-friendly!182
