I can remember the first Earth Day I was in 6th grade in NYC and we were planting a vegetable garden at our school. It was SO much fun, digging in that dirt..... Not sure who went back and picked the vegetables as they ripened, but we had fun planting!

"It’s time to bring a little love to light. We challenge you to decide what you love and love it in a big way by harnessing its power to make positive change. Embrace philanthropy. Volunteer. If you’re a leader, lead. If you have a gift, share it. Whatever you have to give, make the decision, then take action in 2010: Love what matters."
