Why the Planet Loves Raised Bed Gardening
When we say the planet loves raised bed gardening, we are referencing the positive environmental impact this method offers. Raised bed gardening, and all types of gardening, help the environment in a variety of ways.
For example, growing plants in raised beds, you provide them with great growing conditions. This results in large, healthy plants that look great and produce all kinds of fruits, vegetables, and flowers.
With more healthy plants in your garden, you’re doing your bit for the environment! Plants draw in carbon monoxide and replace it with oxygen. The more plants in the world, the lower the carbon levels remain, helping to minimize the impact that carbon emissions have.
Plus, with raised bed gardening you become more self-sufficient. Raised beds make it easy to grow all kind of fruits and vegetables, and when these produce seeds you can start the process over every season.
By growing all this produce at home, you buy less at the supermarket, reducing your carbon footprint at the same time.
