Five things you can do to garden
Just like people, plants need air in order to live. Human
beings use lungs to breathe in a gas called oxygen and breathe
out a gas called carbon dioxide. Without our lungs, we couldn’t
survive. Plants on the other hand, use their leaves and roots
to breathe in carbon dioxide and turn it into clean, pure
oxygen that humans and animals then breathe. If it weren’t
for plants, we wouldn’t have enough oxygen!
