Resources You Can Use in These Unusual Times from the National Initiative for Consumer Horticulture

We had just finished creating our April memes that celebrate both Earth Day and Arbor Day when COVID-19 modified our plans (just as it changed yours). Maintaining social distance is pretty easy for a group like NICH. We meet electronically and are scattered across the country.

Many of us are faced with new challenges of suddenly finding ourselves unemployed, working from home, kids out of school, and uncertainty and worry. Many of you are essential workers on the front lines of this pandemic. We understand that these lifestyle changes can be difficult for both you and your customers. We will do our part by providing content that is engaging and involves consumers with plants and nature every day.

This is a good time to inspire new consumers of horticulture. After all, we can enjoy our house plants and garden in the yard. We can even take advantage of horticulture service industries, such as lawn and tree care, and landscape designers, while maintaining a safe social distance.
