Celebrate Earth Day !

 Picnic for the Planet
 Join the celebration!  

This Earth Day, celebrate the planet we live on with good food and great people. Choose a favorite outdoor location, round up some friends and take the planet out to lunch! This idea combines two of my favorite things....
being outside in the springtime and eating with good friends!

Picnic for the Planet is a celebration of the planet we live on,
the food it provides and the people we share it with.
In short, the planet does a lot for us — we should take it out for lunch.

On and around Earth Day 2011 (April 22), people all around the world will be stepping outside and heading to their favorite outdoor spot to enjoy good food in the company of great people.
