Triscuit's Home Farming Movement is encouraging Americans to get involved in edible gardening by providing a free seed card in specially marked boxes of Triscuit crackers. The Original Triscuit package contains a basil seed card and the Reduced Fat Triscuit box comes with a dill seeds.
Triscuit's Home Farming Movement
Earlier this spring I blogged on the MrBrownThumb blog about how I ran out to the store to purchase a box of Triscuit crackers when I heard that some boxes contained seeds. Even though I was already growing Thai, Spicy Greek, a purple, lemon, cinnamon and "bonsai" basil I couldn't resist purchasing a box of Triscuits for the free basil seeds. I think the Home Farming Movement is a great way to introduce people to growing some of their own food even if it is just a couple of herbs. Besides the planting instructions for the seeds Triscuit has partnered with Paul James "The Gardener Guy" who is providing gardening tips on the Home Farming website and is helping to create 50 community-based farms across the country.
I think the Home Farming Movement is a great way to introduce people to vegetable and herb gardening. The next time you're at the grocery store pick up a box of Triscuit crackers and sow some some seeds and start your very own herb garden, even if you only have a small space like a windowbox or a container on your deck.
Last week Dei Worldwide contacted me offering me the two boxes of Triscuits pictured above and a $20.00 gift card to pay for pots and potting soil to plant my Home Farming Movement seeds. Thanks!
