An old-fashioned craft offers a modern solution for reducing climate impact—pickling. In this video, Bobbie Kuhlman, horticulturist and curator of the Pounder Vegetable Garden, talks about picking as a sustainable practice for reducing food waste and the greenhouse gas emissions that go with it.
Bobbie shows some of the beautiful pickling vegetables growing in the garden, as well as examples of colorful home pickling projects. In summer 2020, the Pounder Vegetable Garden demonstrates several gardening and home practices that help individuals and families reduce their carbon footprint.
