Prince Charles Encourages Fellow Britons To Pursue Organic Gardening

February 24, 2011: 10:47 AM EST
Great Britain’s heir to the throne Prince Charles says that organic gardening of fruits and vegetables, even if only a tiny patch, can make a difference to the environment because the plants absorb carbon, provide food and create a living area for birds and butterflies. The Prince is encouraged by the sight of people cultivating their own food, be it in gardens, allotments or containers. Himself a major landowner and gardener, the Prince says that organic gardeners especially are “key players” in tackling environmental problems because they use fewer, if any, chemicals and encourage the growth of beneficial wildlife. He hopes his own huge and successful garden at Highgrove “provides inspiration to show what can be done in a mere few decades.”
