Get Involved at EarthDay.Org

On Thursday, April 22nd at noon, will host its second Earth Day Live Digital Event, to be held in tandem with the Biden administration’s global climate summit.

Plant an Herb Garden

To get involved at home, try starting small by planting your very own herb garden. In addition to providing a sustainable way to add fresh flavor to home cooking, an herb garden also instantly offers a dash of spring greenery to any home! Don’t have much of a green thumb? Start with non-picky herbs like basil, chives, oregano, parsley, rosemary, or thyme. Get kiddos involved in planting too to teach them early about making smart choices for the environment!
