Low food miles and your greenhouse
At Malvern Garden Buildings, we are as pleased as anyone that the conversation about unnecessary plastic and waste has come to the forefront in recent times. For too long, supermarkets and shops have packaged our products in ways that have no real value to us but have a huge impact on the planet.
However, although this conversation is a great start, it is a long road to right the wrongs in retail for the food we purchase. So what can we do to help our precious planet from home, and help make positive changes right here, right now?
Well, it’s time to get growing! And at Malvern Garden Buildings’ we have a huge range of greenhouses to enable you to get started.
When you buy your fruit and vegetables from the supermarket, can you be sure exactly where they have come from? The further your food has travelled, the larger the carbon footprint on the earth. But if you grow as many fruits, veggies and herbs as you can right in your back garden, you’ll have absolutely no food miles but 100% delicious food.
Growing your own is a lot easier than people think. With a little careful planning and the right tools, you can easily harvest a great crop of tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, peppers, strawberries, raspberries and more. Not to mention the abundance of herbs which are easy to grow and pack a big punch when added to your meals (most herbs can even be grown in your kitchen windowsill too)!
A Malvern Garden Buildings’ greenhouse will provide you with a warm, stable environment where plants can be grown all year round, and can help you get a jump-start on the growing season, particularly when Spring is slow to start – like we have seen this year!
Just ask our team about our range of greenhouses to find the perfect one for you – and keep your food miles low with us in 2018.
