If you have space, grow vegetables in a garden or plant a fruit tree. Without a yard, you can use pots and planters on a patio or grow herbs in a pot near a window. There is great satisfaction in the DIY spirit of growing and harvesting your own food—and your small contribution helps fight climate change, too. But the words of writer and farmer Wendell Berry might best describe the reasons to plant a home garden: "One of the most important resources that a garden makes available for use, is the gardener’s own body. A garden gives the body the dignity of working in its own support. It is a way of rejoining the human race."
