Today's Kindness #325: May 19, 2023
Plant Something Day is a holiday that is celebrated every year on May 19.
It encourages people to take a few minutes to plant something around them. It could be a flower, a tree, or an indoor plant. Any plant that grows would suffice. During the holiday, local businesses like nurseries and landscapers usually host community events to plant in public spaces together. People can plant at home, in schools, in parks, and in other community gardens. The planting initiatives help to protect the environment and enhance the beauty of public spaces.
Plant Something Day was established to encourage more people to grow plants around them. This helps to boost the number of plants in the environment. It also gives people the opportunity to grow some plant species that they may not have been able to access easily.
How To Observe:
You can take the time to plant something around you. It can be flowers, herbs, fruits, or vegetables.
You can share seeds with the people around you. Giving them seeds will encourage them to plant.
Water Some Plants
Plants need water to survive. Give some water to the plants around you to help them thrive.
