Planting A Tree For Earth Day

In honor of Earth Day, we planted our very own Dogwood tree today here in the Navy Yard. We were lucky enough to have two garden experts — Scott from Terrain and Susanne from our home office – to help us! We’re so excited to have done something to celebrate Earth Day, and we can’t wait to watch our tree grow! It will be awesome to always have this living, growing tree as a reminder to take care of our planet. This definitely won’t be the last you see of our little Dogwood here on the blog. :)

Love the pictures! Planting trees always be a great way to celebrate Earth Day. Not only to beautifying that area, but it is also our way to give back to the environment. This activity can be a fun activity for family too.
