The Climate Friendly Gardener

Climate Action Fife partner PLANT (Tayport) have put together some great fact sheets to help us all be more climate friendly in our own gardens.

Fact Sheet 1 – Water Harvesting

In our changing climate, we experience extremes in weather that can affect the way we do things in our gardens. The gardening seasons are changing. We see heavy rainfall, storms and flash floods, and periods of drought.

So, what can we do in our gardens to help with the precious resource, water? Download the spreadsheet: CFG-Fact-Sheet-1-Water-Harvesting-.docx.pdf

Fact Sheet 2 – Composting, become a soil champion

Composting helps build soil health and you can reuse your vegetable waste to do this. Home composting is the most environmentally-friendly way of dealing with kitchen and garden waste, plus it produces compost that can be used as an excellent soil improver.

Fact Sheet 3 – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – getting creative with resources

Did you know that more than 5 trillion pieces of plastic are already floating in our oceans? Until we can stop producing plastic, we should be creative in the ways we can reduce and reuse our plastic, including in our gardens. Save money on buying expensive pots for plants and seeds by getting creative with everyday things. Download the spreadsheet: CFG-fact-sheet-3-reduce-reuse-recycle-.docx.pdf
