Spring has officially sprung and down South, we are in full bloom. We have all spent a lot more time at home in the last year and many have picked up a few more house-centric hobbies like baking bread (and cakes, and cookies, and pies) or perhaps you hopped on the trend of going back in time and taking up Victorian era hobbies like pressing flowers or needle point. But if you've spent the time binge-reading articles by The Grumpy Gardner and the warm sunshine that spring brings (in between spring thundershowers of course) has you yearning to get your hands in the soil, we have some great news for you.
Simple Mills, the organic snack company, has launched their "It Starts at Home" program today, May 12. In a press release, the company stated that they hope, "to encourage consumers to help restore the planet by implementing small, sustainable changes, like starting an organic garden, at home." And to encourage us to do just that, they are offering a chance to win a $1,000 Gardener's Supply Company gift card. In fact, they are offering 10 chances as 10 winners will be selected on or around May 26.
