Sustainable, Healthy Living: Is Community Greenhouse an Option, Too?

Mixed fruits and vegetablesRecently, there has been a call to conserve resources on our planet for a sustainable, healthy life. That was so until the cost of most items, primarily groceries, became so high it made most families reduce their consumption of healthy food.

Fortunately, this should not be the case; you can cut your grocery costs drastically by growing vegetables in a greenhouse to have enough supply for your family throughout the year.

You only need some small outdoor space and water. You can even choose to establish a community greenhouse with the help of firms such as Growing Spaces and pool resources with your neighbors to manage the greenhouse.

But, why all the fuzz on sustainable, healthy foods?

Improves Health

Fresh vegetables are full of ready vitamins, which you begin losing when you store them in your refrigerator. One of the ways you can enjoy these fresh vegetables is by growing them within reach, so that their nutrient contents are at their peak when you pick them.

Economic Benefit

Getting your vegetables from an outdoor garden drastically slashes your grocery budget. That does not even require you to have an expansive area to grow them; a small vegetable garden, even on your balcony, is enough space.

Again, you will continue having these vegetables even long after their season has passed.

Reduce Environment Degradation

If you are using organic fertilizer and pesticides in growing your vegetables, you are contributing to reducing the level of chemical pollution in the environment. You also reduce pollution from transporting fresh vegetable produce from the gardens to the market.
