GLRPPR Sector Resource: The Climate Friendly Gardener: A Guide to Combating Global Warming from the Ground Up

Title:
The Climate Friendly Gardener: A Guide to Combating Global Warming from the Ground Up

Abstract:
Seventy percent of American households engage in some level of gardening or lawn care every year.1 Some do it for beautiful flowers, lush grass, or fresh fruits and vegetables; some for the peace and quiet or the connection to nature. But there is another reason to grow plants in your yard: certain gardening practices can help combat global warming. This guide will show you how. First, it explains the science linking soil, plants, and climate change; then it provides practical tips for a more climate-friendly garden, and links to resources that will help you adapt these tips to your own needs. (PDF Format; Length: 12 pages)
