It is even more important when you’re staying at home to be thankful for what you have and give back to our planet.
Every little thing helps: recycle your water bottles, conserve electricity, or reuse what you already have.
Fifteen years ago, Bill gave me a worm composter so that we could turn our food scraps into rich soil for our garden. It’s a 3-level simple home for hundreds of red wigglers that munch on potato and carrot peelings, eggshells, and melon rind. We have much less waste and dark, nutrient-rich compost to amend our herbs and fruit trees. It’s a little thing but it feels good to reuse and recycle what we already have.
Happy Earth Day.
Stay safe and happy sketching,
