Who needs store-bought bouquets when you can create one straight from the heart?

  2. If flower picking isn’t enough, get out and start pulling weeds. But before you start yanking out every green thing in sight, reach out to your local environmental organization for some expert advice.

Plus, you might even get the chance to join an 'invasive species pull' - it's like a weeding party but with a cause!

  6. Support your local produce farmer. Not only will you be supporting growers in your area, but buying local cuts out fossil-fuel intensive transport by air, land, and sea. Plus, who doesn't love the idea of fresher, tastier, more sustainable, and way more nutritious food? It's like a delicious win-win for everyone involved!

    By joining a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program or shopping directly at a local farm, you're not just getting your hands on some amazing produce - you're also helping to build a stronger community and reduce your carbon footprint. And let's be honest, the veggies from your neighbor's farm just taste better than the ones that have been sitting on a truck for days.

    So next time you're craving some fresh greens or juicy fruits, skip the supermarket and head straight to your local farmer. Your taste buds (and the planet) will thank you!
