Easter came a little earlier than expected for Good Earth Plant Company, and for residents of the Alpha Square Apartment complex.
Eco-Warrior Jim Mumford and daughter Allie Mumford delivered orchids and bromeliads to residents to brighten their homes. They were enthusiastically received with many smiles.

Spring also brings an event Good Earth Plants has supported for the past 15 years: San Diego’s Art Alive.
This annual fundraiser for the San Diego Museum of Art brings together floral and plant designers and art for three day celebration April 11-13, 2014. Floral designers and those in related industries (like us at Good Earth Plants) create a interpretation of a piece of art using plants and flowers as their living medium.
