Earth Day Education

We were busy last week promoting Earth Day. We donated 31 Herb Growers (basil, dill, chives, cilantro) to the Grasshopper and Cricket’s preschool classes. We also donated 104 Wildflower seed bombs to Mrs. McCoy’s sixth grade science class. This is what it is all about…giving back and teaching our young peeps! For those of you that […]

It’s Earth Day, Celebrate

What a great thing to celebrate, our beautiful earth! We have Mountains, Lakes, Hills, Rivers, Beaches, Wildlife and Plants of all kinds. We have regulations set forth in our country so we have cleaner air to breathe and safe water to drink.  We should all be very thankful for this.  Not everyone has this.  There are cities where […]

The impact of your footprint

Do you know what the impact of your footprint is? I didn’t until about five minutes ago.  I try to make good decisions,  I recycle, I turn the lights off, I try not to let the water run too long.  On the other hand, I don’t take public transportation, we travel, we eat meat and […]

Easter Tradition

Growing up in my family, our Easter tradition was to make an Easter nest out of fresh flowers, preferably wildflowers.  I’m assuming it is a German tradition, but I will have to get back to you on that.  It was fun! We would go out the Saturday before Easter and make our little Easter nest […]

My Compost Pile – An Uncertain Future

From our Environment Scientist… I mentioned in my last post about trying to reduce my food waste and starting a backyard compost pile.  I don’t have any experience composting.  My 1st attempt ended with failure.  My earthy friends said just make a pile in the backyard, so easy.  For me, not so much.  My dogs […]

Trying to make a difference, One change at a time

I’m new to blogging, but really excited Stacie asked me to share some thoughts, interesting facts and tips for being more conscience about the environment.   I love nature!  I think it’s a completely amazing and beautiful creation.  I’m the person who watches nature shows excited to see the life of an urban coyote.  FYI, it’s […]
