    Spending time outside every day has helped me to relax and be grateful for the nature that is surrounding me.

    I've been a lot more cautious of how much water I'm using and trying to use less water and for shorter amounts.

    Going for a walk or having a picnic are two ways that I enjoy quality time friends in nature. I also enjoy doing some of these things alone!

    New to composting? Be sure to check out the action resource links to learn tips and more about it. As you transition from throwing food away to composting, what do you notice about how much you are tossing? How will you use your compost once it is ready?
