Photosynthesis is the process by which plants produce their energy.
Essentially they use sunlight to help give the energy for chemical reactions that allow them to derive the chemicals that they need to stay alive and grow, and in the process something very useful happens - oxygen is produced as a byproduct of the sugars they create.
