Food and Garden

There are lots of things you can do with your food and in your garden to reduce your environmental impact and improve your well-being.

  2. Grow your own food
  3. Buy local and organic food
  4. Share produce with your community
  5. Get involved with your local food community
  6. Compost your food waste
  7. Create eco-systems around your home
  8. Protect and minimise your impact on eco-systems
