Bring Earth Day to the Garden

Plaza El Segundo Store, El Segundo, California

  • Join a local WKF Garden Grant recipient (find one here) for an Earth Day celebration
  • Sponsor a “Meet a Real Farmer” table and invite your local produce suppliers
  • Discuss the importance of pollinators with kids

The Plaza El Segundo store visited a WKF Garden Grant recipient, Billy Mitchell Elementary School, to celebrate Earth Day in their beautiful garden. You can find nearby grant recipients to celebrate with here. Fun lessons and games like compost bingo, rain barrel activities, and a weather station were set up around the garden to help celebrate.

Meet a Real Farmer

Thanks to Lisa Zollner, Marketing Supervisor, there was a “Meet a Real Farmer” station as well. Local Ojai pixie tangerine farmer, Mike, was on hand to answer all the questions kids had about farming. Farmer Mike brought tangerines for everyone too!

Kiddos discussed the importance of bees for any farm or garden and Lisa gave away Burt’s Bees wallets. WKF has great kid-oriented pollinator resources here to help get students buzzing about bees!
