In some cultures, such as in the US, having a front yard of green grass is not only considered beautiful, it’s also a status symbol.

What if we saw the land in our communities as a resource that could provide free food to everyone?
Why is this information good to know? Well, it means that if you cannot afford to eat organic fruits and vegetables every day, then you can focus on only buying organic with foods on The Dirty Dozen list, and not buying organic versions of the foods on the Clean 15 list. In this way, you can save money and dramatically reduce the amount of pesticides that you eat. Remember that the next time you visit the produce section of the grocery store.
