EAST LONGMEADOW, Mass (WGGB)- Today the Massachusetts Flower Growers Association and the Massachusetts Landscape Association Launched an initiative called, “Don’t Just Stand There, Plant Something!”

“A lot of people are stuck on their computers, smart phones, and they don’t really have time to garden anymore,” says Chris Graziano of East Longmeadow.

Graziano Gardens in East Longmeadow spent the morning planting this tree at Heritage Park, and this was only their first stop. Many others are jumping on board too. By today’s end, over 100 communties across the state will be involved.

“It’s a sea of beauty, every tree that you plant is going to get bigger, is going to get nicer, and is going to provide oxygen for the air, and add shade,” adds Graziano.

You can be involved in the initiative too! For more information visit www.plantsomethingma.org!
