In the spirit of spring our Video of the Week this week features Governor Patrick’s visit to an elementary school where he encourages the children to Plant Something!  As he fills small flower pots with soil, the governor discusses where his love of gardening stems from and the deep importance this type of community activity can have on the young generation. The governor is excited to take part in Plant Something, a collection of Massachusetts’ professional environmental horticulturists who are responsible for growing, installing, and caring for natural landscapes in our communities.
