Perhaps you want to learn how to garden sustainably. What is sustainable gardening? Whilst there’s no official definition, the ethos is to minimize humans’ impact on the earth. Sustainable gardening practices at home include avoid using chemicals in fertilisers and pest control, preserving natural resources, improving soil condition, planting natives, reducing your lawn area, lowering your need to water your garden and reducing waste whenever possible. The sustainable gardening ideas in these books will help you contribute to a happier, healthier planet.
