1) Turn your lawn to a vegetable garden or join a community gardening program.
2) Start a community garden program if there isn’t on in your area.
3) Eat more vegetables–a heavy meat diet creates more greenhouse gases.
4) Can your foods and throw a “preserve party” to swap foods.
5) Create a group to glean local farm fields of unharvested crops.
6) Look for farmers markets, roadside stands and CSAs.
7) Form an organic food buying club.
8) Throw potlucks, with an emphasis on organic and locally-grown foods.
