Help The Planet In Your Own Backyard

Liam Moriarty/JPR

It's a pretty typical question from people mulling the wide-ranging effects of climate change: "what can I do?"  Get started in the backyard, for one thing. 

Cultivating a garden, especially if lots of people do it, provides more than symbolic benefits to the planet and its inhabitants. 

Carley Corrado of Enliven Leadership got her degrees in chemistry, and now works to inspire other people to talk at least small steps to turning back climate change.  She speaks in Medford Tuesday night (November 27), and visits the studio in advance.
