We don’t want to wait until Earth Day to celebrate nature and its bounty. In fact, we’re reminded of the latter every single day when we’re making our gelato with as many local ingredients as we can get our hands on.
April is a hint of what’s to come. It’s grass beginning to sprout, and flowers starting to bloom. It’s almost nice enough to go camping and hiking every weekend. It’s when we make our return to the Dupont Circle and Penn Quarter FRESHFarm markets, too.
You’d be surprised at how many songs (that aren’t protest songs or nature sounds) praise trees, forests, lakes, mountains, canyons, oceans, flowers and just plain going outside and loving where you are. We’ve put fifteen of our favorites into this month’s mixtape so that you can join in on our love and appreciation all month long.
