By Karen Dunsmore, Co-President, Harmony UU Church

Harmony Unitarian Universalist Church is the newest UU congregation in the Cincinnati area, with services starting in January 2010. Earth Day was Harmony’s first social action event. The children made displays about new recycling rules in the Cincinnati area and also about local food resources. Several families started seeds for our seed giveaway at the Arbor Day Celebration and Earth Walk in Mason, Ohio, a northeast suburb of Cincinnati. While it was too windy for the display boards to stay upright, the seedling giveaway was a hit. We gave out almost 200 seedlings, which included heirloom tomatoes, broccoli, peppers, cucumbers, basil, and a few mystery plants. Everyone had fun and luckily the rain held off until the end of the event.
