Mariah’s thoughts on gardening:

“Gardening has many lessons that are extremely valuable to the younger generations. For instance, nurturing and respecting plant life and its little creatures, receiving positive reinforcement from one’s efforts, and pleasant sensorial experiences. Therefore, gardening is not just for the middle to elder generations (unlike the stigma), it should be taught to our youth since, after all, they have the biggest impact in all aspects of conservation.”

Saving water is important because…

…it is every individual’s responsibility within a collective to respect and preserve our Earth’s gifts. The real question is, “Why NOT save water?”
