Earth Day Planting 2011

Happy Earth Day Everyone! This morning we hosted our 4th Annual Earth Day Planting Playgroup. We invited four families to join us on this chilly, drizzly day and plant seeds to be grown indoors for the next 4-6 weeks. Each family was given a labeled egg carton for vegetables and also one for flowers. It was some good, dirty fun and the kids also got some exercise playing on some outdoor toys (not going to let a little drizzle deter them.)

Afterwards, we came back indoors to warm up, some indoor play, and do have a potluck lunch that was completely vegetarian.

I also gave the moms some Ecover Dishwasher Tablets & coupons that I got from a sampling programs to pass out. Next up for the day is getting in a run outside.

CCC - You told me you already bought seeds. But we have plenty yet and I am always in support of people planting vegetables & flowers. We can plan something if you would like.
