The Gardener’s Contribution

One look at our home and it’s obvious that we have a fire for greening the world. One can even develop vines which will flower, create colour and food sun-drenched zones such as large windows, decks and patios, walkways and entrances.

And let’s not to neglect to mention the water gardens, vegetable gardens and green roofs too.When we bought our first house, a fixer top, we turned abused ex-rental into a little green cottage oasis filled with trees, shrubs, flowers and food-producing gardens. It was featured in a tiny local magazine as well as the local newspaper in the moment. That was 11 years ago. We’ve since done the same to our property here too, totally shifting this home and property to the point that it is no longer recognizable to people who rented here a dozen years back. It was a thrill to have our accredited wildlife habitat, bee-friendly property featured from the I Love Creston magazine a couple of short years ago.If you do a search online, you will discover we’re so passionate about this we’ve written countless articles, hosted many dozens of radio broadcasts on the topic, have been encouraged to perform interviews sharing our advice and much more. And through all of this, hoping that we have motivated others to green up their spaces too.Plants do more for us than feed us and cool our homes. Perennial shrubs, trees and plants help mitigate climate change by absorbing pollutants like carbon dioxide and nitrous oxides – discharging sterile oxygen into the atmosphere. They’ll also filter dust from busy roads and reduce soil erosion on farmlands. They reduce UV-B rays (which causes skin cancer) and maintain our vehicles from becoming too hot in the summertime. They protect the soil from preventing water erosion and compaction, reducing flooding and actually producing soil via their own life cycles.They’ll also help cool the air by releasing water vapor through their leaves, protecting plantings around them from breakage. Plantings can permeate noise, decrease heating and cooling costs for our homes, and increase the neighborhood. They attract pollinators and supply habitat for numerous sorts of wild creatures from insects to birds.Did you know that communities with a lot of trees and green spaces really have much less crime? Children are less fat in these areas too, since they’re playing and engaging in community group events outdoors. Plants also provide us with meals on an annual basis, particularly trees and perennials that make fruit and nut harvests annually. Gardens will help create stronger neighborhoods, as we’re more likely to connect and share abundant harvests. Gift-giving for birthdays, anniversaries, special holidays really affect a limited budget. By sharing high-calorie foods, natural goods, flower bouquets or preserves (jams/jelly/syrup/wine/dried herbs) created in the garden, one can greatly reduce or even eliminate the expenses incurred from gift-giving. Children squeal with joy at the sights as well as the elderly love to stop and chatter, sharing memories and telling us of additional incredible gardens they have seen throughout their walks. Neighbors cease when passing by and reach out to comment or ask questions.There are various benefits to even the smallest green space – a balcony garden, a leading step potted place, a terraced wall backyard… they all contribute to making the world a better place. Gardeners, though, benefit the most out of their protected homes, decreased energy costs, enhanced land worth and total freezers and cupboards each year from the foods that they produce. Herbs, for example, can be very costly and can be stored dried or frozen for over a year. Only a few baskets on the front step can yield all the herbs you may use; if they are very happy, you’ll have a while to share as well.For those wanting to understand how to do use your backyard’s harvests, or want to benefit from deals during peak harvest time through local farmers – check out our brand new cookbook! – From One Little Garden – Over 300 Delicious, Nutritious Recipes is now available at Amazon!
