|12 Simple Things You Can Do for Earth Day!|
|“Restore Our Earth” is this year’s Earth Day 2021 theme. As individuals, there are many little ways we can restore our planet on a daily basis. All these little efforts add up to something big that nurtures the planet!|
1. Pick up a piece of litter and dispose of responsibly.
2. Plant a tree - they are the lungs of our planet and more.
3. Create biodiversity at home - transform your lawn into lush habitat.
4. Plant native plants – they help restore larger ecosystems. Remove invasive plants to make room for more beneficial plants..
5. Plant a pollinator garden – habitat loss is real!
6. Garden organically and regeneratively.
7. Start composting! Your food waste becomes a wonderful soil amendment.
8. Protect our waterways & drinking water – anything we dump on the ground or in our plumbing systems eventually finds its way into our water.
9. Ditch the pesticides – they kill pollinators and affect creatures further up the food chain (like birds).
10. Protect our air – don’t burn plastic and be aware that sprays travel in the air.
11. Rake leaves instead of using a blower. Blowers create noise pollution and affect pollinator habitat.
12. Dark Sky Concept - use motion detector security lights rather than floodlights to protect wildlife from light confusion.
Every little bit counts for good!

|FROM WILMA: Earth Day (April 22) was founded in 1970 as a day of education about environmental issues and as a way to provide for a greener, cleaner world. Earth Day observances have increased into Earth Day Week. Arbor Day was begun in 1872 with the purpose of encouraging individuals and groups to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees. It is officially the last Friday in April but can be held at other times depending on best planting conditions.|
Planting trees and other plants are great ways to observe Earth Day and Arbor Day. Planting in memory or honor of someone can be special. The Town of Weaverville will be planting a tree in memory of Bett Stroud, former mayor of Weaverville. Susan and Joe delivered a 'Merlot' redbud tree to be planted in memory of a former employee, Alexandra Heatherly-Murray. It will be planted among her garden beds near her home at the Nolichucky Gorge Campground.
I just planted a Viburnum prunifolium (Black Haw) - a native that has medicinal properties. I thought of my paternal grandmother who used medicinal plants (I wish I had paid more attention). Black Haws are a large shrub/small tree and are flowering heavily this year. They are also a great host plant for pollinators.

Zoom Online Workshop
Sat. April 24, 2021
10 – 11 am, plus Q & A
With Lisa Wagner
If you have already signed up for this workshop, the invitation link will be sent to your EMAIL by 8 am on Saturday morning, April 24.
A vegetable garden can be a lovely addition to home landscapes by attention to design and plant selection, even incorporating edibles into landscape beds. In late spring and summer, warm season vegetables and herbs bring on a different character to the vegetable garden than the leafy greens of early spring cool season plantings, from the attractive fruits of eggplants, peppers, and tomatoes to the twining vines of beans.
Many of our favorite vegetables require warm weather to grow and develop fruit – tomatoes, peppers, squash, and beans are just a few summer favorites.
Early May is the perfect time in our region to start putting in warm-season transplants and sow seeds of heat-loving crops like beans, squash, and cucumbers.
Join Lisa Wagner to learn about soil and light requirements, choosing vegetable varieties, planting intensively, doing succession cropping, growing in containers, and enjoying and preserving the harvest. The virtual Zoom program will also include a Q & A period. Read Lisa's bio.
Free, but must RSVP. Must sign up by 6 pm, Friday, April 23 to receive an invitation link.
