Easter is nearly upon us, but we've turned a new leaf (yet again). We've gone nearly 99% plant strong vegan (we still have out little flock of backyard chickens and we do eat their eggs and we do eat honey) and we're trying to ditch sugar and plastic crap. Let's focus on adventures, learning, projects, and growing (figuratively and literally).
We spent nearly every weekend in March volunteering. On one morning with Operation Clean City, my oldest daughter and I happened upon this - a beautiful little head of lettuce growing from a crack in the sidewalk... in downtown Augusta.
I want to see more.
Herbs, flowers, food.
For Easter this year... sure, we'll color eggs from our chickens (and we're all taking a natural dyes class this week with Augusta Locally Grown at The Clubhouse), but no chocolate bunnies or crappy candy... no plastic eggs filled with cheap plastic stuff. Seeds. Oodles of seeds. Then the fun begins. We'll stroll about downtown with our seeds and play secret Santa and hopefully, as spring turns to summer, we will see our seeds grow and make our city even more lovely.
Won't you join us in some secret seed sowing?
