We’re based in New York, which is more of a concrete jungle than a literal lush paradise, but that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate Mother Nature. As the world celebrates Earth Day on Wednesday, April 22nd, we see it as a great excuse to get outdoors – just in case the sunny skies and blooming flowers aren’t enough incentive on their own!
This week, there are so many ways to blend our daily dose of whimsy with an extra indulgence in Vitamin D. Sometimes it’s as simple as taking the long route home on foot instead of hopping in a cab. It might be some quiet reading on a lawn chair or a park bench. For those eager to get their hands dirty, GreenThumb NYC offers an online map of over 600 community gardens across all five boroughs that welcome volunteers. We hope you find a whimsical way to celebrate the earth this week, whether big or small!
P.S. Do you live in NYC? While you’re out in the sunshine this weekend, be sure to stop by our Park Slope store. On Saturday afternoon, we’re throwing a party in honor of its recent renovations, complete with cake, cider, and other special giveaways – you can get all the details in our last post, and we look forward to seeing you there!
