Going green for the holidays doesn’t have to be a challenge. In fact, several area gardeners and business persons have offered a number of tips for celebrating the holidays in a simple, earth-friendly fashion.
The holidays, for many, start with putting up the Christmas tree. For those wishing to go the eco-friendly route, a live Christmas tree is optimal.
“I would buy a real tree, put the lights on a timer to shut off to save electricity and use the leftover branches to make a wreath,” said local Master Gardener Mary-Louise Hagler.
