Using your yard and garden to grow fruits and vegetables saves the energy of
transporting food via trucks across long distances. Instead, the only trip
you have to take is a few feet out the back door.
Having a home garden also helps keep you healthy. Since you are the one
planting and harvesting the fruits and vegetables, you know that they are
organic and fresh. And before planting, you should look into what types of
fruits and vegetables work best for your climate.
If you live in an apartment or canít start a garden in your own yard, check
out your local community gardens. Thereís usually a place nearby where you
can start your own little farm.
