Celebrate Your Garden!

 

 

Start the Season Off Right… Celebrate Your Garden!

The gardening season is upon us AND its National Gardening Month so here are a few ideas on how to celebrate your garden!

1) Did you know there are over 33 million people (including 13 million children) who, most times, can not afford food for their household! Plant an extra row of veggies for folks you know who could benefit from it, or contact your local food bank.

2) Share your gardening hobby with your child or grandchild. Search out local, upcoming yard sales or flea markets in your area and hunt for items to start a child’s gardening ‘kit.’ Make sure to purchase sturdy tools – kids can be hard on tools.

3) Research a specific ethnic group and learn about their native cuisine. Take what you find and plant some food items from your list. Show off your cooking skills by serving up the dishes in the kitchen!

4) Offer to help someone in your neighborhood with their gardening this year. Moms with young children, older folks, or those that are immobile will really appreciate your generosity and so will their gardens.

5) Have an abundance of tomatoes or other fast producing garden item? Share with your co-workers. Take some into your work and have a group lunch or let them take home some to share with their families.

6) Go to your local farmers market! This is a fun, entertaining, and low-cost weekend or weekday activity for yourself or for your whole family. Experience the local foods and get familiar with the farmers in the area. Have a snack… Most offer samples of their bounty.

7) Buy mulch in bulk with your neighbors and save a few bucks. Have a mulching party and spend the day mulching together. Each person could provide a tasty treat or drink to enjoy during and afterwards for a job well done.

8) Don’t forget about the other green days… Arbor Day, Earth Day, or any day you choose!

Have fun and happy gardening!
