        Food and Carbon: Garden Activity Guide | Nature Works Everywhere

        Does eating food grown locally help reduce your carbon footprint? In this activity and lesson plan, students will learn about the relationship between CO2 production, climate change, and sourcing food locally. Students will consider different ways food is produced, transported, and consumed and will evaluate how food they grow locally may have a smaller carbon footprint than food found in the grocery store. They will measure their garden's CO2 offset by using calculations based on the production, transportation, and consumption of their food.
