earth day and gardening

Every day should be Earth day. But that’s another post. Start small. You don’t need a green thumb to grow simply things like onions, beans, and lettuce in your own backyard. Teaching kids to plant seeds is teaching them about where their food comes from and gives them an appreciation for the earth. If space is a problem, think about joining a community garden, or co-op. You’ll take turns caring for the soil, weeding, and watering. Make it a family affair! When it comes time to harvest, you’ll be amazed at what your portion of the yield will be.

It’s also a great way to get to know your neighbors.
