Helping Kids Plant Their Own Seeds of Responsible Growth

May 23, 2023 in Events & Fundraising

Well they were technically Sunflower and Zinnia seeds provided by the great MoMo Flower Farm, but one can hope!

The 30th anniversary of the Clark Public Utilities Home & Garden Idea Fair was a success and we were happy to be a part of it. The show featured over 150 vendors, plant sales, beautiful landscape displays and fun for the whole family.

For our booth, children (of any age) were welcomed to plant a flower seed and take it home to then watch grow. Over 100 children got their hands in the dirt to learn how to plant a seed and almost all walked away with a huge smile.

And, of course, we were able to have countless conversations about the upcoming Comprehensive Plan Update and the importance of sound land use policies. Almost 50 attendees signed up for our newsletter and many of those expressed interest in volunteering with us!

Are you interested in volunteering with us? From event support, data entry, to writing testimony, we need your help. Please fill out this form.
