5 ways gardeners can help the planet on Earth Day

1. Use organic, non-toxic solutions to help plants both resist and recover from attack by pests and diseases. This means utilizing beneficial insects, companion planting and natural pest control methods.

2. Reuse garden waste in compost and mulch.

3. Choose plants that are an appropriate fit for your soil, sun and shade conditions.

4. Choose native plants (or Mediterranean plants) in your Bay Area garden: these all need less water.

5. Provide wildlife habitat in your garden.
