1. Vegetable patch

Vegetable patch I have started to grow some of my own herbs and vegetables to use in my cooking at home and to sell to the restaurant where I work. The restaurant often changes its menu so that it can buy local foods in season as much as possible. Buying local food helps farms in Ireland keep working and crops can encourage wildlife.

Buying less food from overseas also helps decrease the amount of fuel used in transporting food.
