Planting Inspiration

Plants Make Our Lives Better artwork by Annabelle, age 9.
Just in time for the holidays, the Oregon Association of Nurseries (OAN) is publishing its first ever e-calendar, which features the artwork of elementary school children, ages six to 11. We asked classrooms to encourage their students to create artwork that celebrates how plants make our lives better. The resulting art is beautiful and inspiring! The calendar, which includes monthly plant recommendations by Great Plant Picks and fun facts about how plants make our lives better, can be downloaded at www.PlantSomethingOregon.com.

The OAN, and nursery and landscape associations in 11 other states, are using the Plant Something™ program to encourage more gardening and education about the health and well-being, financial and environmental benefits of plants and gardening. To learn more about the program, visit the national Plant Something website and stay in touch with the Plant Something initiative via its Facebook page.

Some more Plant Something artwork for you to enjoy. Lots of trees. Lots of clean water. And lots of birds and pollinators.
