Community gardening is important part of green living

  1. 1. Why “Community Gardening” is a very important part of Green Living? It is no surprise that there are many positives related to practicing Green Living. These include:  Change and improvement in attitude and health.  Community gardening is an activity that involves the entire neighborhood  It promotes sustainable living while giving people a place to unwind and reconnect. Community gardening is basically gardening in an area that is not in use or an area that is donated. Those who do not have space to grow their own gardens can join their neighbors in a mutual effort to create a beautiful and sustainable space. These urban areas are often lacking when it comes to fresh produce and the community garden can solve that problem. Aside from growing organic and fresh produce, these gardens also offer a place to unwind and get rid of stress. It is a community effort that is open to all ages and people, therefore bringing the community closer. Aside from helping people learn about sustainable living, community gardening also preserves nature by keeping the area lush and green. Since organic food can be quite costly, community gardening helps its members to have access to high quality food, which greatly impacts their health. Children that grow up playing at and learning about community gardening are more aware of fruits and vegetables and can take their knowledge of sustainable living with them for life. These gardens also help families to cut back on costs and shopping. Because there is less need for grocery shopping, this also helps the environment by cutting back on packaging and transportation. It is said that a community garden has up to five times increased productivity by acre than major farming. These gardens also provide an area to compost, which helps reduce rubbish and improves soil quality. www.FreshandNatural.com
