Even if you live in an urban
setting, you can still begin to eat
locally by growing some of your
own food in your yard or a
community garden. The Victory
Gardens during World War II
provided 40% of the country's
Industrial farming techniques
and transporting food to market
produces 20% of all greenhouse
gases. We can change this as well.
Gardens add to the beauty of a
yard. Vegetables and flowers can
be mixed to create an inviting
landscape. Transform your yard
into a productive 'urban farm' using
organic and sustainable practices.
