    I researched how much a cheap electric car is. Then researched a normal car. I checked how much you save from gas and found out you can save money by buying an electric car.

    I learned that silvopasture is when cows don't graze on regular pastures, but graze on places with trees and fruit and it is good for the cows and helps nature.
