Pledge & PlantLIFE Center Stage created a call to action to seed, celebrate and grow heartfelt qualities in their life by participating in “Pledge and Plant”. On a paper heart embedded with wildflower seeds, participants were asked to write an intention, be it global or personal, on the seeded paper heart and plant it in a garden with the idea, “When we create the right conditions for growth and tend to it, what was previously unknown or seemingly out-of-reach becomes attainable.”
