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.
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!
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.
Once you or your friends are ready to plant, soak the seed paper overnight and rip it up into small pieces to plant. Keep moist (but not soggy) and in a sunny, warm spot. Once seedlings are a few inches in height they can be transferred to a garden bed or a larger container. If you used peat pots, these can be planted directly in the ground.
For a fun project to put together with your kids or crafty friends, you can easily make a DIY seed starting kit with old egg cartons, soil, paper tags (for planting instructions), and seed packets. This is an adorable idea to give out on Earth Day at a book club, to your kids, or for a school project. You can choose a theme for each kit, like “Herb Garden,” “Butterfly Garden,” “My First Garden,” and more. The best thing about using egg cartons is once the seeds are sprouted to a couple of inches, you can cut the egg carton apart and plant each cardboard cell directly in the ground. Easy!

If you’re looking for a more in-depth project to either do before Earth Day to hand out, or to celebrate Earth Day with your office, school, or kids, making seed bombs is a great option. You’ll need wildflower seeds, compost, non-toxic clay, and water. It’s best to make the seed bombs at least one day ahead of when you’ll need them so they have time to dry and set. You can use any wildflower seed of your choosing in the bombs, but for Earth Day it makes sense to choose pollinator-friendly mixtures or species.
On Earth Day (or any day), simply throw your seed bombs on bare soil wherever you’d like wildflowers to grow. Water until sprouts are a few inches high and then rainfall should be enough for the wildflowers to thrive.

It’s amazing to see all of the different celebrations around the world for Earth Day, and no matter how you choose to spend the day, it’s important to have fun. If you can’t plant on Earth Day, get together with some of your friends or family and help clean up your local park, greenspace, or sidewalks near your home. If you’re able to plant, add pollinator-friendly, native, and long-blooming varieties to your garden to help pollinators from early spring all the way through fall.
