7 Ways to Grow GreenI was raised by a father who loved to work the land. We had several gardens while I was growing up full of vegetables, herbs and flowers. My mother and I tried to list recently all the crops we grew over the years: tomatoes, squash, pumpkins, cucumbers, broccoli, zucchini, bell peppers, hot peppers, carrots, corn, green beans, radishes, lettuce, blueberries, cherries, peaches, strawberries … the list goes on and on! My parents were constantly pickling and canning things, making jam and pasta sauce. We lived a "sustainable" lifestyle without even realizing it. My father was a carpenter, so he built much of our furniture, not to mention our whole house. I ultimately became a city-dweller, but I'm definitely into green living, reusing and recycling products in creative ways. These are 7 of the cleverest and most attractive sustainable projects I've come across, showing you ways to re-purpose everyday items to remarkable effect within the home and in your garden.
