Wow…today is like Christmas Eve for me. I have become quite active in my Community – District Heights, Maryland….and we are excited!!! This year we are celebrating Earth Day within OUR community…and most importantly in OUR COMMUNITY GARDEN!!! Talk about a way to have a party as we celebrate the Earth. We have interactive demonstrations from how to start your vegetable garden, container gardening, houseplant info, earthly crafts and a tool donation container…..so even if you already know it all, donate those underused tools and just come on down and share your personal commitment statement on how YOU will be a better Steward of the land.
My goal is to do my part to make sure that this Earth is in better shape than it is today for my grandsons sake. I will try to practice making sure that my environmental footprint is making a difference by doing the following:
Using my shower water to water my plants;
not printing anymore than necessary;
shredding my paper that is not chemical laden and putting it into my garden instead of the landfill;
driving less and walking more (Go GIRLTREK.com)
growing more of my own vegetables and supporting the small farmer and local markets
What will you do to leave a better world for generations to come???
There will be a party in the Fiesta Gardens in District Heights as we celebrate Earth Day….
I can’t wait for my tattoo!!!!!!!by
