In the next week or so two “GREEN HOLIDAYS” will be observed that our industry and Harper’s take part in on a daily basis. This coming Sunday, April 22nd is Earth Day. Earth Day was started on April 22nd 1970 by then Wisconsin senator Gaylord Nelson. Earth Day 1970 achieved a rare political alignment, enlisting support from Republicans and Democrats, rich and poor, city slickers and farmers, tycoons and labor leaders. Many a tree,shrub,and garden have been planted in observance and hopefully many will continue to be.
A week from Friday, April 27th is Arbor Day in Arizona. Arbor Day started by Nebraska settler J.Sterling Nelson on April 10,1872. Nelson missed his Michigan forest and trees were needed for shade,wind breaks, and to reduce soil erosion (all great reasons to plant today!) in the early days of Nebraska. So enamored by trees and their beauty and benefit Nelson pushed to have an “official” day put in place for the celebration of planting trees.
Harper’s and the nursery industry in Arizona have begun a campaign called “Just Plant Something”. A modern day revival of both these days I suppose. We hope you’ll partake every day in the cause of making our planet a more beautiful place, we do.
