How many carbon emissions do these plants and trees in the garden offset?
I can't answer this question myself, but I am sure there are many people and organizations out there who could. However, I can try to limit my computer use, phone use, and other personal electronics use by simply getting outside more and leaving the world of technology behind.
Get out and listen to this buzz instead!
Nature will teach you the most about gardening if you only stop to listen.
You say that you want to know more about gardening? Then get outside and start doing it. It doesn't have to be an elaborate "garden space", "outdoor room" or "fantasy living area". Start simple. Plant some seeds, dig up some lawn, play in the dirt, look for bugs, get your children involved. Organic gardening at its finest. It's that easy to start. And leave your cordless phone, cell phone or iPhone in the house. Turned off. You really won't miss all that technology buzz, and you might just start hearing the buzz of nature instead.
