Sustainable Community Gardening and Carbon Footprinting
As concerns regarding over consumption and wasted resources become more immediate throughout the globe, more and more people and governments are trying to embrace a new way of thinking and acting about their future. Although the motivation for involvement varies, it often includes the desire to improve the quality of community life, to protect the environment, and to encourage individuals to participate in the decisions that affect them.
