Each Earth Day, we love seeing gardeners celebrate by spreading their love of the earth and encouraging others to grow flowers in their own backyards. Better yet, more and more gardeners are understanding that every day -- not just Earth Day -- it’s important to understand how we can help the earth by planting pollinator-friendly, regional, and neonicotinoid (pesticide)-free varieties.
This Earth Day, we’ve put together a few easy Earth Day Projects for you to do with your children, to give out as DIY gifts at your office, hand out at your book club, or anywhere else you’ll be celebrating the earth on April 22. We’ve included super quick, easy ideas to more hands-on activities for those looking to spend a little more time.
Earth Day Projects: Seed Packets
One of the easiest ways to spread your love of gardening on Earth Day, and encourage others to help the earth, is to hand out seed packets. We have dozens of non-GMO and neonicotinoid-free seed packets that contain quick growing, pollinator friendly wildflowers. The seed packets can be planted on bare ground (or in large containers) once there’s no more chance of frost in your area. The seeds will sprout quickly and start blooming just weeks after planting, attracting bees, butterflies, and other pollinators to the garden. Starting at only $.75/packet, this an affordable, cute, and easy giveaway for gardeners and non-gardeners alike.
If you want to add more pizazz to your Earth Day handouts, pair your seed packet with a fresh cut flower. If you’re lucky enough to have things blooming in your garden already, cut them fresh from the garden and hand a stem out with an easy-to-grow wildflower seed packet. If your garden still hasn’t woken up for the season, head to your local florist or grocery store to see what they have in stock. This way people can have something beautiful to enjoy now and to look forward to when their seeds grow and bloom!
Earth Day Projects: Plantable Paper & Pots
If you’re looking to give someone a foolproof DIY growing kit, pair one of our adorable plantable paper Earths or Flowers with a peat pot, small plastic nursery pot, an old coffee can (with holes drilled in the bottom), a mason jar (with at least 1” of rocks at the bottom for drainage), or a nice ceramic pot. Fill the container with soil and place the seed paper on top.
