Include Earth Day Activities in Farm Tours
Earth Day will be celebrated April 22nd this year. Take advantage of this special day by teaching environmental responsibility to farm visitors. Provide each of your farm guests with a peat pot, soil and some seed. Share with them the joy of planting. Encourage them to start a compost pile at home. Teach water conservation. No matter where you live today; water is a concern. Teaching that farms access surface water when possible for their animals and crops shows that farmers are practicing good stewardship. It's Earth Day, celebrate!
