Being kind to the environment and trying to cut down on our carbon footprints is something that a lot of us have in the back of our minds.
So what can we do to try and help the environment?
A lot of homeowners I’ve noticed have decided to start growing their own food!
Think about it, not only are you getting fresh healthy produce, but you are saving on all that energy and fuel that is needed to transport your groceries from wherever it is they come from.
Plus growing your own food is much more convenient! Imagine if you only had to walk to your back garden each time you needed a new lettuce or some tomatoes for your salad.
If you are interested putting together a vegetable garden of your very own I found some tips to get you started if you head to www.greengold.com.au/greengold/CARENOTES/CARENOTES/vegetabl.htm. Otherwise go and visit your local Bunnings or hardware store this weekend, I’m sure they’ll be able to give you some great advice too.
