Clearwater, FL, January 11, 2020 --(PR.com
)-- Striving to increase environmental awareness at a grassroots level the Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV) Center will host a Gardening Workshop and Plant Give-Away on January 11th at 2 p.m. for children and families. The workshop has the goal of educating young people on the environment and is organized in partnership with the Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay. Guests can RSVP by calling the CCV Center directly at (727) 316-5309.
There is no cost to attend the workshop. Guests will get to exercise their green-thumb by taking a plant home after the workshop is over. Complimentary refreshments will be provided.
Starting with an educational section delivered by a professional. Kids will learn what positive effect they could have “if one were simply to frown when people do things to mess up the planet,” as written by L. Ron Hubbard, author of The Way to Happiness in the precept “Safeguard and Improve Your Environment.”
Michael Soltero, Manager of the CCV Center said, “Sometimes it’s hard to conceive that one person can cause any large improvement on his environment, but in any effort to make a big change, many little changes have to be made by a lot of people. Whether you want to or not, you will find yourself living in the environment that you create. Even something as simple as planting flowers in our front yards, we improve our environment by just that much,” said Soltero.
According to Earthday.org, “About 9.9 billion tons of carbon dioxide are emitted each year by factories, power plants and cars burning fossil fuels, while 15 million acres of forest are deforested annually worldwide—that’s 36 football fields per minute. Planting 100 million trees is just a start to make a difference in confronting climate change.”
Attendees will be encouraged to get their hands dirty, and install their new plant at their homes.
In addition to community events like the gardening workshop, the CCV Center hosts nonprofits in their own activities, offering its facilities to them at no cost. Meetings, End of Year parties and other events are routine activities in the center.
