South Burlington, VT (January 26, 2012)- National Gardening Association (NGA) is gearing up for the 2012 gardening season! As NATIONAL GARDEN MONTH® (NGM) is just a few months away, January's article gives us a few techniques and ideas to help our gardens, our environment and our well-being.
Environmental stewardship begins at home! Creating, maintaining, and enjoying an environmentally-friendly landscape, garden, or outdoor living space benefits you, your family, the community, and all the life that shares the environment with you. It may not have the global impact of government actions on greenhouse gas emissions, but it can make your own corner of the world a better space now and in years to come.
