What is Sustainability?
yay poollution. so cool
Rain barrels are a great way of conserving resources such as water. At the Coppell Community Garden, for example, rain barrels are located to the right of the entrance where they collect rain water so it can be used for the garden plots instead of wasting water. Not only is it less expensive, but it also helps the plants, again part of biodiversity. Another form of conserving resources include contour farming which is also called terrace farming. In this sort of farming, in hilly areas, slopes are cut into steps which slows down the flow of water and prevents the loss of topsoil. Contouring reduces soil erosion and by reducing it, it increases water infiltration and better water quality. Afforestation also is a practice of conserving soil and forest by planting trees on a larger scale. Forests can be conserved by balancing planned cutting of trees and afforestation. All these forms conserving resources are all related in protecting biodiversity
