How Green is My Garden

Your message to “Think Green” has inspired me, as did President Obama’s speech about using wind power and rain water. It got me thinking about that drought we had a couple of summers ago, and I don’t want to get burned again! Well, I don’t want my plants to get burned, anyway. I found some old half whiskey barrels and have hooked up my gutter downspouts to them, and have started saving all the rain water I can now for future use in my garden this summer.

Driving to Work Was a Job in Itself

I want to commend you guys at MTA for trying to “think green” and moving ahead with your plan to buy more hybrid buses. When gas hit an all time high last year, I started taking the bus to work, and have been saving a ton of “green.” Now I hear on the news that people using cars to commute are much more likely to have heart attacks from all the stress of driving in traffic, so commuting by bus or train must is not only healthier for you, but also healthier for the planet!

We have a lot of beautiful, mature, shade trees in our neighborhood. Last fall, instead of bagging the leaves in our yard for disposal, we made mulch. It was an easy and inexpensive process that inspired several of my neighbors to also try. I already make compost for my vegetable garden so this was a natural next step in keeping my trees healthy and my community clean and green!

I don't own a car -- by choice. The MTA takes me everywhere I need to be, whether it's to work, doctor's appointments, to the airport or train station, shopping or to the theatre, my monthly pass is my ticket to ride.

My friends call me the festival fanatic because I love going to all of the great festivals Baltimore offers each year and can get to all them on Bus, Metro Subway or Light Rail.

I received an MTA reusable bag at last year's Earth Day celebration and have been using it ever since. It is a great way to carry groceries, library books or dvds from Blockbuster. Thank you MTA!
