By having a glimpse at these easy-to-follow articles as a start, you can put yourself well on the way to not only saving gas on grocery store trips, but saving green and going green at the same time!

You may want to talk with your neighbors about starting a community garden for your neighborhood. Not only is it great time spent with friends and neighbors when maintaining the garden, but it’s a group effort for the common good. There’s nothing that’s not stimulating about that! And just think about how much more attractive your neighborhood will be to prospective buyers when you’ve got a wonderful cooperative project like a garden. Curb appeal is great and it catches the buyer’s eye – but it’s the details that always seal the deal.
