Making an environmental statement can be done without words. Action speaks louder than words.
In my front garden, I am making a visual statement about promoting home vegetable gardens, growing organic, and sharing the harvest with my neighbors.
This little herb garden in the front has surprised me with its positive energy. Neighbors stop and talk. I see people taking time to look at the herb garden.
I have offered some neighbors to cut herbs for cooking when they wish. Placing cutting shears inside a recycled mailbox invites them to take what they need.
I have placed a pail on the fence offering my neighbors to take the abundance of vegetables or herbs with them. I wrote the simple word “SHARE” on the pail.
I only put the pail up today and already the response is positive. I hope it sends the message of love, sense of community, and sharing.
