Your Lawn is Lacking: The Why and How of Sustainable Gardening
Sustainable  agriculture is an essential part of the solution to climate change. After  determining the importance and necessity of sustainable agriculture, our team  determined an excellent way for every-day people to take proactive actions  towards creating healthier environments: garden sustainably themselves. After  researching growing techniques that emphasize sustainable practices, our team  developed a plan for a model garden--one designed to maximize soil health,  biodiversity, and organic produce yield--for the average Pennsylvanian yard.  This poster seeks to inform the general public about sustainable gardening  practices, and to motivate them to do it.

Large firms from America and Europe have practiced slavery, polluted the environment, and even overthrow governments, for bananas. How bad is the industrial practice and what is the cost of bananas?
