Sustainability isn’t just a buzzword anymore.  It’s a necessity with multiple applications. Webster’s Dictionary defines it as “being a method of harvesting or using a resource so that the resource is not depleted or permanently damaged”.  

Not all that long ago, many people seemed to think that our resources were endless and we could do what we wanted with the land and what was in it, be that plant or animal. Turns out, that’s not true!  

The good news is that more and more people and businesses are focusing on changing how we live so that future generations have a chance to enjoy the wonders of planet Earth!  Check out this site for a lot more ways to Greener Living

What has all this got to do with you and I and Garden Bite? Well, sharing information is never a bad thing. If one person decides to start a kitchen compost pile, they just took a sustainability step.  If one person planted a vegetable garden because I helped take some of their trepidation away, then there’s another step… and so on. While some big changes are needed, those small changes or small steps, add up!
