Y'all - spring is SO CLOSE. I know it's 80 degrees in some parts of the country, but here in Vermont it is ... not that temperature. Regardless of temperature, the first day of spring is just a few weeks away. If you're looking for a meaningful, and garden-related way to celebrate, consider taking part in Plant a Seed Day, hosted by our friends at Big Green.
On March 19, you can join a massive day of action that rallies people to stand up and take action to build a better food system. In our country, there are 40 million people who don’t have reliable access to enough affordable, nutritious food.
It's simple - pledge to plant a seed, with your family, students, co-workers, or whoever you consider your people. And then, on March 19, the first day of spring, get planting! I already told you about my flower garden dreams for this summer, but now I'm also thinking about all the tomatoes and eggplants and peppers and brassicas that I will start from seed. Together, my family will weed, water, and care for those plants until we harvest and eat them. I am so grateful that we are able to feed ourselves this way.
