“PLEDGE TO PLANT – EARTH DAY, APRIL 22, 2015”

Be a part of the biggest grass-root effort in history by planting a seed/tree as a “give back” to Earth.

earth day plant seed

It’s an old Native American tradition that when you take something from the Earth, you must put something back. Earth Day 2015 will be a global “give back to Earth” event, as an “offering” for all the planet gives us. Our goal is to plant one billion seeds/trees. Please plant something that is organic, perennial and suitable to the growing conditions in your area. If the temperature is not conducive to planting on April 22nd, please start growing a plant indoors or commit to planting your tree once the outdoor temperature is warm enough. If you live in an apartment, please plant something in a container or donate a tree to a garden in your area. Please nurture your plantings, like children, until they can sustain themselves on their own.

It is important to keep a certain portion of the planet covered with forests as it is essential for regulating the distribution of rain and snow over the surface, thus, controlling the climate. Every tree planted will assist in stabilizing the climate and provide habitat for various species.

We need your assistance in contacting local organizations, business establishments, schools/universities in your area to get them involved. There is a group page on Facebook for the planning of the event. Feel free to join and offer whatever assistance you can. Everyone is welcome…All ideas are welcome. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1039631319395983/

We can no longer wait for something outside of us to create change. WE ARE IT.

For the Butterflies, some planting suggestions: milkweed, honeysuckle, aster

For the Bees, some planting suggestions: dandelion, lavender, ox-eye daisy, snapdragon, nasturtium, sunflower, yarrow, wild lilac, echinacea, hosta, zinnias

HOSTED BY: Earth Day Network, Forest Nation, The Master Shift, and The White Feather Foundation

Please contact these organizations for information on tree planting in your area, to purchase trees/seeds, or perhaps to make a donation. Or…just purchase from your local garden center. 🙂
