As much as we would all like to be either Superman or Wonder Woman saving the world from intergalactic attacks, the likelihood of that is very slim. However, we can save the planet in other ways!

Growing and maintaining your own pesticide-free garden will make you feel a sense of achievement, too, and you certainly don't need a huge plot of land to grow your own. Lots of vegetables, herbs and berries thrive in container gardens!
