Down to Earth is a family owned Garden center located in Eau Claire on 6025 Ardnt Lane. They also have a shop The Mustard Seed Boutique and a cafe, The Five and Two Cafe. DTE was created by father and son to spend time together outdoors. This tradition is carried on with events for the whole family. On October 26th, 2019 one of these events called Pooches and Pumpkins took place. Activities includes pumpkin painting, a pumpkin patch, and of course, dogs! There is a costume contest for the pooches, the winner being awarded in treats. Not only could anyone bring their own dog for the fun, but Bob’s House for Dogs brought some furry friends in need of a home.
