Solar Energy

The greatest advantages of solar energy are that it is completely free and is available in a limitless supply. Both of these factors provide a huge benefit to consumers and help reduce pollution. Replacing non-renewable energy with this type of energy is both environmentally and financially effective.

Crop Rotation

Crop Rotation is the successive planting of different crops on the same land to improve soil fertility and help control insects and diseases. This farming practice is beneficial in several ways, most notably because it is is chemical free. Crop rotation has been proven to maximize the growth potential of land, while also preventing disease and insects in the soil. Not only can this form of development benefit commercial farmers, but it can also aid those who garden at home.
