Obama to run green election campaign

In 2008 President Obama came to power with many ambitious plans to make America a much greener nation.  Michelle Obama supported this idea with practical examples of how American homes can be more sustainable by growing their own food.


Many of President Obamas green ambitions have sadly been hijacked but it would be wonderful if he could get this gas guzzling country to create a lasting legacy for environmental reform. The planet needs to recover from many years of American ignorance and its governments refusal to acknowledge that climate change is a serious issue or as the American Department of Defence now calls it “an accelerant of instability or conflict”.

Weird how the climate shifts?

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and who is keen to "manage" the effects of shifting weather patterns on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and it has evolved over 12 years to inspire engagement with climate change outside our back doors, in our personal gardens and green spaces. My mission is to fertilise and expand this platform to grow a community of global gardeners communicating about the effects of climate change on our plants and exploring how each individual can make small changes in our lives to become more sustainable. The future of our gardens and #OurPlanet is in our hands - please plant your own seeds for our collective sustainable future.
