Gardener's Guide to Global Warming
The National Wildlife Federation just released a 40-page report called the Gardener's Guide to Global Warming. It includes lots of tips on things we can do in and around our gardens and homes to give wildlife a better chance of survival -- and keep the air and the environment in general more healthful in the process.
Some of the suggestions are fairly simple things many gardeners do anyway: compost food scraps, use barrels to catch rainwater, plant native species, etc. But there are also suggestions for going deeper: encourage home stores and garden centers to carry (and use!) energy-efficient products, participate in citizen science (e.g., Project BudBurst), and create a green roof. The report also recommends using human-powered garden tools. (Good grief, who thought gas-powered leaf blowers were a good idea anyway?)
Has the threat of global warming prompted you to do anything differently in your garden or yard? If so, what changes have you made?
