[ Earth Week Celebration in ATX ]

Monarchcate4ACCNRGDay41917ACCDepartmentofProfessionalPhotography-JenniferKlanika 591x218I had the pleasure w/ some team mates from Entercom ATX & my honey Ted to celebrate Mama Earth and her wonders w/ the Fantastic peeps at Northridge ACC Campus. It was ACC NRG Garden Day. We tended to their community gardens with some cleaning up and planting.  I planted my first 3 flower / plants ever!!!  Northridge ACC Gardens are part of a Waystation for the Monarchs, which is the reason Milkweed is a very important plant to have around. It’s the only one they eat which helps them change into a butterfly.  It really is cool! Click here to see What’s up! #EarthWeekACC   #1Thing
