Creation Care Tip of the Week

Buy a Plant for Your House

It may not be the season to plant a tree or garden outside but you can purchase a plant for the indoors. The plant will produce oxygen and improve your indoor air quality. You can choose a flower, herb, or a plant that bears fruit such as a tomato, pepper, or strawberries.
