For this challenge, let's help Mother Nature out by adding a bit more greenery to the scene. Whether you've got a tiny apartment or sprawling acres, there's always room to plant something.


Flowers have an immediate impact on happiness and a long-term positive effect on moods.

Trees (if you're going to plant something big...) can reduce air conditioning needs by 30%. Plus, they are amazing.

If you plant pollinator-friendly gardens, you can help revive the health and numbers of vital creatures such as honeybees.

Trees and green spaces inspire unity and harmony in communities. 


Start by figuring out what kind of commitment you can make. Do you have a small apartment? Perhaps start small with a windowsill herb garden or just a plant or two in your living room. Do you have the time and space to start a veggie garden? Go talk to that neighbour who is always pottering in their beautiful garden. Don't start with a massive project - just plant SOMETHING.


You may find you need a few supplies if you're going to plant anything more ambitious than some windowsill flowers. More importantly, you'll need some good gardening resources for your region - have a dig around online and see what's out there for your climate and soil.



Once you've had your fill of this challenge, pick another! You can find lots of options here. 


Our individual efforts​ won't have much of an impact if there are only a few of us making these changes. The more people we can get involved, the bigger a difference we'll make. Tell a friend or use the buttons below to share this page.
