Learn more about the history of Arbor Day on April 28th and how you can celebrate in your Truman Park apartment this post. We have activities, salads, and desserts to help you celebrate, as well. We hope that you have a great month here in Largo, MD!

Arbor Day began when J. Sterling Morton, a journalist in Nebraska, campaigned in his columns to have thousands of trees planted all over Nebraska. Morton believed that planting trees all over the state would have environmental and aesthetic benefits. You can learn more about the history of Arbor Day online.

The Arbor Day Foundation® has plenty of great ideas to help you celebrate your Arbor Day, including tree planting instructions. Find an environmental organization near Largo, MD and go out and plant some trees! The Arbor Day Foundation® provides easy-to-follow tree planting instructions. This is what they have to say about finding a place to plant your tree: “Identify the prospective tree planting location and, if it is on city property, find out what municipal department is in charge of planting and caring for city trees. Ask that department who is responsible for the identified area and what process must be followed to receive permission to plant a tree there.”

We think a salad is the perfect lunch for Arbor Day. We really love this roasted cauliflower salad with lemon tahini dressing from Budget Bytes. This delicious (and healthy) meal is full of vegetables. We are big fans of the tahini dressing. Use tahini, water, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, cayenne, and salt to make it.

Make these fudge tree rings from Handmade Charlotte for Arbor Day this year. Use sugar, butter, evaporated milk, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and marshmallow cream to make this scrumptious and delicious treat.
