Use your garden to lower ecological footprint

Posted by Karen Cheah on Tue 19 August 2014

Australia has one of the world's highest ecological footprint, many times the worldwide footprint.  Should we and can we, do something about this?

We are blessed with abundant land and we sing about it all the time...golden soil and wealth for toil...abounds in nature's gifts (which conjures up the images of nature strips!).  So why not make full use of our gardens (land)?

Have a read of this article by Sustainable Gardening Australia to see how we can use our garden (or the lack of it) to reduce our individual footprint.
