Amid all of the Evansville events designed to celebrate our glorious planet this Earth Day, we here at Zeidler’s Flowers want to recommend one more. We think a fitting tribute to Earth on April 22 would be to bring a bit of it into your own home and grow it into something grand. Spend the day recycling, planting, cleaning up or learning more about how we can preserve our beautiful planet, and then bring home a little piece of it with you. Growing something in your own patch of the world promotes environmental awareness among your family, giving your kids an important lesson in how to cultivate something green and alive.
Which is why we love our Terrarium as an Earth Day gift. These starter plants come in a variety, set inside a glass terrarium which mimics the Earth and its atmosphere. The dome is a fun way to grow these tiny plants and offers a concrete look at the process for kids. This also makes an engaging piece of decor in a sunny kitchen.
Spend this Earth Day doing something great in our community, but don’t forget to tend to your own place in the planet, too. Keeping plants and flowers around is a wonderful way to strengthen your connection with nature.
