Submit photos of yourself completing GREEN TASKS at home to share ways in which YOU are an Earth Ambassador! Examples might include putting a bucket in the shower beneath you and then watering your garden using the gray-water. You could also plant some flowers to increase opportunity for pollination to occur. Share what you are doing with your school community as part of your commitment to being an Earth Ambassador. Submissions will be added to a lottery for prizes to be announced at Friday Assemblies!
The Land Conservancy is preparing “Butterfly Baskets” for sale in fall and spring to help make it easier for homeowners and apartment dwellers to support the threatened species we all love. One basket will provide you with four plants to put in the ground (or into a super large pot) and you can pre-order spring baskets for pick up in March 2023. If you’d like to spread the word, ask your neighbors if they will join you in planting some natives to create a waystation for butterflies. Or you might call the Conservancy to arrange a butterfly birthday bash with friends, where you make ten (or so) pots available and throw an outdoor planting party, where each of your guests goes home with a butterfly flower and pot. The butterflies will arrive later, with the right plants in place to attract them!
