Celebrate Earth Day with Feed & Seed Depot

Crestwood's Feed & Seed Depot offers a variety of ways for you to celebrate Earth Day! With so many of us at home this year, Earth Day might look a little different, but it can still be celebrated!

Our family loves all of the local nurseries, greenhouses and garden shops in Oldham County.  We decided to support one of Crestwood's small businesses by buying some Earth Day supplies from Feed & Seed Depot.  We love the warm atmosphere of this business.  The greetings from Kathy, Steve and Sadie (Steve's sweet shop pup) are the best and we always feel like we are part of the family.

Bird Feeders and Seed - We lost count of how many different feeders they had in their store! Adults and children find pleasure in bird watching and what a fun addition to your yard or windowsill. The hummingbird feeders are our favorite. They have several other feeds for all kinds of animals - squirrel, deer and dogs.  Our animal friends are a part of our Earth, too! Pinterest is full of all kinds of birdseed projects that you can do at home.  I'm sure we all have plenty of empty toilet paper rolls ready to be covered in birdseed!

Garden Seeds - Steve said that their huge variety of garden seeds have been very popular right now as families are getting their gardens ready or starting a new one for the first time this year. If you've thought about starting a garden, Feed & Seed Depot can help you! They welcome questions and love to help.

Families can paint and decorate the pots with special Earth Day 2020 messages to remember the day.

We encourage you to support our small businesses in Oldham County this Earth Day and every day! Feed & Seed Depot is just one of the wonderful stores that can help you celebrate Earth Day or any other outdoor project.  Some other area shops to consider are:

Reardon's Market
Starview Greenhouses
Goodwin Greenhouse
Deibel Greenhouse
Yew Dell Botanical Gardens - plant sale
