Plant a seed for other Colorado kids to enjoy in the future.
When you plant a seed you are giving the community a great gift. This seed could be a flower, shrub, tree, vegetable, or fruit. Plants and trees are good for the environment because they put oxygen back into the air, provide shade, help with erosion, and make the outside green and colorful! It’s good to grow a garden in the back yard or participate in a community garden and grow your own food. There are plenty of ways to help and learn about how to grow plants and trees around your community.
