The Espoma Co., The Edible Schoolyard Project Collaborate
It’s National Garden Month and, to celebrate, The Espoma Co. 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 Co. “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.
