Atlanta, GA — Backyard sanctuaries popped up throughout the pandemic, dotted with fire pits, string lights and above ground pools. And with major travel plans still on hold, spring and summer garden plans are all the rage.

Here to lend a hand in spring gardening, Lowe’s is giving away a different gardening kit each week in April at locations across Atlanta. SpringFest is helping novice gardeners with a confidence boost.

According the website, Lowe’s will provide online and in-store demos from lawn care maintenance to paint instruction. COVID-19 protocols will be followed.

“With 55 percent of homeowners surveyed inspired to upgrade their outdoor entertaining in creative ways, SpringFest will offer everything they need to satisfy spring fever,” the company said.

Beginning April 1, customers can register for free Garden-to-Go kits, being distributed on Thursdays through the month. The family-friendly activity kits include:

– April 8: Garden-to-Go kit sponsored by Miracle-Gro with exclusive recipes from professional cook and food stylist Amanda Frederickson.

– April 15: Lowe’s Mystery Garden Pinata with mystery seed packets.

– April 22: 500,000 tree saplings given out in honor of Earth Day.

– April 29: Lowe’s Butterfly Quest which helps families create a butterfly garden.

April is known for the celebration of Earth Day. This year, Tucker is celebrating on April 17 at sites around the city include recycling, free sapling trees and flower seeds and an educational children’s book. Panola Mountain State Park is planning Earth Week for kids and adults alike, focusing on nature and conservation.
