What if you could make the world a happier place by simply doing a little more of what you already enjoy (maybe even love)? What if you could #PlantItForward?
A beautiful garden, whether a potted up geranium on the front steps or a full-on front yard, is a place of pride and inspiration, and a source of joy and delight to you and all of those who also get to enjoy the beauty. But it’s also something more, something bigger. Because when you plant something–small or grand–the benefits of your individual efforts to both people and the planet are amplified by all the other plantings around you. They all add up.
To what does it all add up? Well, your windowbox + my perennial border + our neighbor’s vegetable garden + the parking lot down the street with a planted berm + a nearby city park when combined help to create an ecosystem that attracts and nurtures pollinators, helps to balance CO2 levels, increases overall green space, and brings a calming-but-exuberant sort of happiness to the community. If you think of your garden like a stream that joins others to becomes a river and eventually an ocean, it’s a pretty powerful idea.
That’s what we mean by #PlantItForward.
