A mid-day snack today made me aware of just how pervasive the “grow your own” movement is becoming in the U.S.
I was munching some Triscuits and happened to notice the cracker maker now has a “Plant a Seed – Grow a Movement” initiative.
The box has a removable cardboard panel on the back with 10 basil seeds and instructions on how to grow them for fresh herbs. They say they have included the seeds on 8 million boxes, and support the Urban Farming and the Home Farming Movement for community-based home farms around the country.
Nabisco also mentions that there is a Home Farming Tool online at triscuit.com/homefarming (might check it out!).
It’s a small step, but a nudge in the right direction.
Makes me proud that we’re helping folks trying a bigger “grow-your-own” movement.
