On Jan. 11, two nonprofit organizations came together to raise awareness on protecting the environment of the Tampa Bay area.
CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, January 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Jan. 11, The Way to Happiness Association (TWTH) of Tampa Bay and the Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV) partnered to host a gardening workshop and plant give-away for nearly 50 children and families from the Tampa Bay area. The inspiration for the event came from a section of the common sense guide The Way to Happiness, titled “Help Take Care of the Planet.”
In this section, The Way to Happiness author L. Ron Hubbard states, “There are many things one can do to help take care of the planet. They begin with the idea that one should. They progress with suggesting to others they should. Man has gotten up to the potential of destroying the planet. He must be pushed on up to the capability and actions of saving it. It is, after all, what we’re standing on.”
The event in downtown Clearwater started at the TWTH center, where younger children participated in arts and crafts while adults engaged in a seminar with a local groundsman, providing basic information on designing gardens and answering questions.
Once finished, attendees walked down the street to the CCV center for the plant give-away. Michael Soltero, CCV Center Manager, said to attendees, “If each one of us did our part to take care of the planet, even if only on our front doorstep, it would be setting a good example for others to follow. Take home the plants you’re getting today and between all of us we can help make our community that much better.”
