Seed Pantry and Garden Organic urge for more urban veg growers
Seed Pantry and Garden Organic’s One Pot Pledge are working together to help people grow their own organic food in whatever space is spare. With a target of 30,000 new organic growers for Britain by 2011.
To encourage people to get started Seed Pantry and Garden Organic have created a new, special edition One Pot Pledge Autumn Salads pack with seeds, equipment and essential advice to grow food throughout autumn and winter months – proving that food can be grown all year round in urban spaces.
The One Pot Pledge Autumn Salads pack has a wonderful collection of vegetable seeds that can be used in meals throughout the year. The colourful, spicy and oriental varieties including: Pak Choi, Rainbow Chard and Spicy Leaf Mustards are easy to grow with a fast turnaround, ensuring fresh tasty ingredients for the kitchen.
As well as supporting the nation’s new grow your own enthusiasts by offering an exclusive 5% discount on the One Pot Pledge Autumn Salads pack, the collaboration will also support Garden Organic’s wider charitable work, as with every pack sold Seed Pantry will donate 5% of the sale to Garden Organic – the UK’s leading organic growing charity.
Seed Pantry founder Neil Whitehead comments, “I’m very excited to be working with Garden Organic, it’s a great charity that has been encouraging people to grow food at home for over 50 years with Britain’s most famous organic advocate, Prince Charles, as Patron. We want everyone to have a go, even if you’re a novice, and enjoy the satisfaction of growing great tasting organic food in whatever space is spare. With this partnership we’re offering simple steps for people to get involved with food growing and to enjoy the wonders of nature.”
One Pot Pledge manager, Charlotte Corner, said, “The aim of our campaign is to turn non-growers into enthusiastic, successful ‘grow your owners’. To do this we need to show people that getting started isn’t scary and that a pot, a selection of appropriate seeds and simple advice are all they need to get started. Seed Pantry offers the perfect approach to growing on a small scale and we’re thrilled to be working with them on this venture.”
