What does Earth have that other planets do not? To start, Earth is the only planet with intelligent life (we think), and the only planet not named for a Roman or Greek God (which is humbling), but it’s also the only planet to get its own day and that’s happening on Saturday, April 22.
An annual tradition since 1970, Earth Day is a great time to increase your sustainable living. To that end, gardening offers a simple solution that helps the environment, promotes healthier food choices, and requires little to no outdoor space. So, whether you live in an urban heaven, like KB Home’s 72 Townsend luxury condominiums in San Francisco, or in a sprawling two-story home at Summerfield in Taylor, Texas, growing a green thumb is easier than you might think.

As a Northern Carolina resident with no yard, I’ve often wondered how on Earth (pun intended) I could grow my own garden. Turns out, going green knows no geographic bounds. With even just a small amount of space, you can grow vegetables yourself and save money on groceries. Indoor gardens are a perfect solution for townhome dwellers, like those in an arid climate like, Henderson, Nevada, or for anyone who can’t devote a significant portion of their yard to gardening. Just keep in mind that most vegetables need around 6-8 hours of direct sunlight in order to thrive. Cherry tomatoes, carrots, and peas are some of your best indoor options; with leafy greens, such as lettuce and spinach, requiring the least amount of sunlight. Here are some indoor garden ideas:
If you have a large backyard, or a large space anywhere outside, then you’re in luck. Outdoor gardens offer the perfect chance to grow vegetables that require more direct sunlight or need more free space around them in order to thrive. Locations that see a lot of sunny skies, like Phoenix, Arizona, and Winter Garden, Florida, are great places for an outdoor garden. Here are some outdoor garden ideas:
Beyond the Vegetable Garden.
Move aside, tomatoes, you’re not the only garden in town. Here are some fun alternatives to a vegetable garden:
Never underestimate the power of a garden to turn a house into a home.
