Organic Gardening & Grow Your Own

April is Earth Month! How are you celebrating and honoring the planet this Earth Day? We’ve got a great way for you to participate in the festivities: join us in our exclusive Community Garden Board on Pinterest! With your help we can make this the biggest community garden on Pinterest!

So, what exactly are we asking you to do? It’s pretty simple, really: Take photos of what you’re growing, or of your favorite DIY garden projects! Examples include: traditional home/yard organic gardens, container gardens, windowsill herb gardens, mason jar sprouts or herb gardens. DIY projects include: canning and preserving, dehydrating, baking or anything that you’ve made with what scrumptious goodies you’ve grown. Have you made a delicious strawberry jam to preserve last year’s summer berry freshness? Or did you preserve your cucumbers, green beans or asparagus to enjoy through the winter? We want to see just how your crafty, garden-grown goodness looks! Photos will be shared on our community Pinterest page.

Then, on Sunday, April 21st at 1 pm PT, we’ll be doing a live webcast with the Whole Foods Market Fairfax on 3rd and Fairfax in Los Angeles to celebrate all Earthlings and You! Our own Editor-in-Chief Laura Klein will be on hand for the live demo along with Whole Foods Market Cooking Specialist, Sibyl Fenwick demoing some cool, crafty DIY projects with mason jars! They’ll also feature two of our readers’ projects live during the broadcast from the Community Garden Pinterest page. One lucky viewer will even win a $100 Whole Foods Market gift card good at any location – you must be present at the live webscast or present at the in store demo to win. Photos may also be included in a collage featured on OrganicAuthority.com and Whole Foods Market’s Earthling Month website (#wfmearthling).
