Green Gardens

April is full of fun green things!  We’ve got Easter which is often celebrated with green plants and beautiful flowers, and we’ve got Earth Day which focuses on helping make the earth a greener, better place to live. April is also National Garden Month.  If you’ve got a big piece of land or if you’re just got a couple of pots in your apartment, you can participate in Garden Month.

Starting Small:

-have a couple of pots in your house, I suggest herbs to start with.

-growing green things in your house helps have healthy oxygen and improve the overall health of the space.

Thinking Bigger:

-plant plants that are native to your area.

-get the family involved.  You’ll get your family outside and make the yard beautiful.

-make a community garden. You can pick a place in your community for everyone to work at or a central location at your apartment building.

-if you really want to make a difference, create a garden at a residential center where seniors or individuals with handicaps live.

What green will you garden this month?
