Don't Just Sit There! Plant an Apple tree on Johnny Appleseed day

The legend is he spent 50 years walking the American countryside. Carrying a leather bag loaded with apple seeds he got from cider mills. The ‘apple seed man’ planted them in forests, along roadways and by streams. It’s been 172 years since he died, but the man known today as Johnny Appleseed is still remembered for his generosity and charity. That’s why on March 11, we will observe Johnny Appleseed day.

What better way to observe this day than planting a tree, more specifically an apple tree? Either with a group of friends, your family, or by yourself, venture down to your local nursery, and buy something to plant. It doesn’t have to be anything as large as a tree. It can be a flower, vegetable plant or small shrub. The key is to get your hands dirty-literally. To honor a man who spent his life giving back to the earth and its people through apple trees. But before you do any planting remember to apply a small dollop of Workman’s Friend Barrier Skin Cream. It will make getting the dirt off of your hands easy with a either a wipe or quick rinse. Happy Johnny Appleseed Day!


Workman’s Friend Barrier Skin Cream is light-weight and odorless product. Apply a dime-sized portion of our non-greasy, formula on each hand. Then rub them together to ensure the cream has been properly absorbed.
