Nicole Richie did her part for the environment yesterday. She joined the Environmental Media Association to launch a partnership with Helen Bernstein High School in Hollywood that supports growing organic gardens in schools across Los Angeles. The expectant mom, showing off her very hip maternity style in a mini chiffon floral dress, took to her blog to raise awareness for the program, which educates children on nutrition and environmental studies. Nicole has been a board member at the Enviornmental Media Associaton for four years. Other members include Amy Smart, Olivia Wilde and Lance Bass.
Always a big proponent of going green, Nicole gave the following tips on how to green up your own community:
1. Visit your local farmers market, and purchase organic produce
2. Start a small garden in your own home or school
3. Share with friends and family the importance of eating natural/pesticide free foods
