Employees of Vancouver-based subsidiary of ScottsMiracle-Gro will grow fresh vegetables hydroponically year-round for local food pantries and food banks
VANCOUVER, Wash., July 22, 2021 /3BL Media/ -––To help combat the hunger facing thousands of their fellow neighbors, The Hawthorne Gardening Company, a subsidiary of The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company, today announced that it has opened the doors to a 4,000 square-foot greenhouse on the grounds of the company’s world headquarters in Vancouver, Washington. The greenhouse will be used to grow healthy food, such as greens, tomatoes, and peppers, year-round for local hunger-fighting organizations.
Pollinators are the gardener’s best friend. And they play a critical role in maintaining the health of our ecosystem and the world’s food production. However, due to many factors, our pollinator populations are declining around the world. At ScottsMiracle-Gro, we are passionate about protecting these essential creatures that help our gardens and our communities thrive. It’s an important way we live out our purpose to GroMoreGood for the environment.
