Another Reason to Obama Garden: Save the Planet

According to Kitchen Gardeners International, up to one-third of all greenhouse gas emissions are due to our industrial-agricultural complex. 

What this means is that it took a lot of diesel to truck that tomato from Venezuela to your house. 

Greenhouse gas emissions are thought to be the leading cause of climate change, which means global warming. 

If you grow at least some of your own fruits and vegetables, you could greatly reduce your carbon footprint. That's another advantage to growing for yourself and your neighbors. 

Plus, your neighbors might really need some fresh vegetables
