Gardening for Carbon Efficiency

 

Almost a month ago, I wrote a piece for the Sustainable Seattle blog encouraging readers to start planning their gardens for the growing season ahead and pointing them to helpful resources.

In case the connection to our class isn’t obvious: urban food production is potentially more carbon efficient than our current food system because it theoretically involves fewer carbon emissions transporting food from farms to consumers. Urban agriculture is even more likely to reduce our community’s carbon emissions if gardeners/farmers have access to good information on how to do it, thereby enabling more food production on the same amount of limited space.
