Blossoms and trees are the prompt for today’s Leap Into Spring Photo Challenge. Sunday April 22nd is Earth Day. A fitting combination for today’s post!
My favorite thing about Earth Day is that I can look around to the land I live on, surrounded by prairie farm and ranch land and see truly how our earth is cared for every day. Katie Pinke, North Dakota Department of Agriculture Marketing and Information Director and Farmgirl, Earth Day 2011.
The season changes, sometimes things are slower or busier on the farm. But the farmer tends to the earth, every single day. For the farmer, every day is Earth Day. Darrin Grimm, Farmer, Earth Day 2011.
The ultimate test of man’s conscience may be his willingness to sacrifice something today for future generations whose words of thanks will not be heard. Gaylord Nelson, former governor of Wisconsin.
The experience of ages has shown that a man who works on the land is purer, nobler, higher, and more moral… Agriculture should be at the basis of everything. That’s my idea. Nikolai Gogol
Do you celebrate Earth Day? If so, how do you celebrate?
