Every day is a gift from Mother Earth. Today is Earth Day and that means giving back. A popular Earth Day activity is planting a tree. But what if you don’t have a yard? What do you do as an urbanite with less than a green thumb and not much in the way of outdoor space? Succulent and cactus gardens are a city dwellers alternative to large scale, outdoor gardening. Succulents and cactus plants are very low maintenance, which translates to very easy to keep among the living. They are slow growers and are drought tolerant. They are very adaptable and can thrive on their own or in clusters of multiple plants. That’s what makes succulent and cactus gardens a fun activity for Earth Day.
