Produced for over 30 years by the staff of the UMass Extension Landscape, Nursery and Urban Forestry Program, the 2023 Garden Calendar's featured article is Gardens, Landscapes, Carbon & Climate Change. On the smaller scale of the backyard, most gardeners strive to make horticultural efforts as responsible and sustainable as possible. An often-overlooked value of the plants we enjoy growing is that they too play a valuable role in carbon mitigation, perhaps a larger role than we expect.
Our 2023 calendar includes helpful tips on choosing plant materials, promoting soil health, and useful management practices for pitching in and enhancing the carbon fixation and storage that happens right outside your door!
