What is a green garden? Is it one that offers habitat and food to native animals? Is it one that produces food for people? Is it one that uses a minimum of water and other resources - or one that creates a shade to cool the house, and is kept damp to help cool the immediate environs? All of these different forms of garden can be a green garden. The impact of plants upon the immediate and wider area in terms of temperature reduction, and possibly rainfall, is an area that is currently one subject to scientific research. It is an interesting area to follow.

For more information on green gardens try the Sustainable Garding Australia website which has a wealth of green hints, local pod groups, and online discussion groups.
