We all already know that gardening and growing fruits and vegetables in our homes is good for our environment, but not many people know that it can also be your little share to combat climate change. By minimizing carbon emissions, gardening benefits the environment.
Many people are uncertain about the level to which modest individual efforts, such as planting trees or growing kitchen gardens, would have an impact on climate change. Well, the answer is yes of course it will have an impact. No matter how small, every plant represents the possibility of a healthier environment.
According to research, the world population is predicted to be approximately 10 billion people by 2050. Global food demand may rise by 59 percent to 98 percent due to the additional 3.4 billion people to feed. This indicates that agricultural production and yields must be boosted globally. However, scientists believe that both the quantity and quality of food supplies are endangered by the effects of climate change. This is an alarming sign not only for the governments but also for the common man to do every possible effort to face this challenge.
