Celebrate National Garden Month with The Espoma Company

Celebrate National Garden Month with The Espoma Company

Monday, April 10, 2017

For the second year, The Espoma Organic Company will collaborate with The Edible Schoolyard Project to raise awareness of organic gardening

As spring weather has many hoping to get outdoors, there’s nothing more special than learning where your food comes from, how to grow it, and how to care for the Earth. Kids can experience these and explore a new hobby when they get outside and get growing.

To celebrate, The Espoma Company is touting the health benefits of fresh, organic food by sharing tips on the company’s Facebook page during the month of April.

Espoma is teaming up with The Edible Schoolyard Project to spread the message on social media. Espoma will also make a donation to the organization to support the nonprofit’s mission of creating and sustaining organic gardens and landscapes that are wholly integrated into a school’s curriculum, culture and food program.

“Kids learn how to make healthier food choices when they grow their own,” says Jeremy Brunner, Vice President of The Espoma Company. “And the best organization they can learn from is The Edible Schoolyard Project. We are thrilled to be working together once again to help kids and families understand where food comes from and how they can grow their own organically.”

Access to healthy and organic food is vital to families everywhere. To raise awareness, Espoma is sharing 30 tips in 30 days on the benefits of gardening. Each tip will be posted daily on Facebook and Twitter. The conversation will cover everything from soil testing and seeding to planting and kid-friendly recipes.
