Make your Volvo Adventure project part of World Environment Day. Why not join in and add your project to the register ‘What are you doing for World Environment Day?’ To register your project, simply visit our partner UNEP’s website by visiting http://www.unep.org/wed/activities/register/ It says that together we can make a difference. That’s something Volvo Adventurers have definitely been doing.
I’m trying out some of your suggestions about travelling of using and finding energy-efficient devices. Okay, cost is an issue but the challenge is there and I’m working towards it, and I hope you are too!
I live in a part of the world where spring has finally arrived and I keep thinking about our winners from Northern Ireland who grew vegetables for their school and local community. There are concerns in the press about food security all over the world, so I’m planting tubers and seeds to grow my own food. I’m recycling drainpipes and bottles to make free growing containers - that’s something a lot of you have already done. I’m also going to try to make an irrigation system from plastic bottles, and a vertical garden. I already harvest rainwater (but the containers are already getting low).
So here is a question for everyone: what tips can you give me for growing vegetables in our gardens?
