ABSTRACT
The author ponders on the relevance of gardens to the reduction of carbon footprints and the prevention of global warming. She considered getting rid of her garden when she discovered how much carbon footprint her family makes despite having a garden. She recounts what she learned from British clergyman Samuel Reynolds Hole about gardens being a source of joy, contentment, inspiration and spiritual sustenance.
