Why not try growing your very own pumpkin for halloween this year?!
Spring is the perfect time of year to sow your pumpkin seeds.Follow the steps below:
Wait for the harvest!
When you shop at your local supermarket, many of the food items you buy will have travelled over 1,500 miles to get there!
However, if you buy locally-grown food, you are cutting down on these miles, which, in turn, reduces the carbon footprint and helps your local community. Not only is that better for the environment, the food is also fresher and packed with more nutrients. Most of the time, you can even buy it directly from the growers themselves!
So, why not help reduce your food’s carbon footprint, and head to your local farmer’s market next time you need a shop?
