Through this partnership, Bonnie Plants will donate $250,000 to AmpleHarvest.org to connect America’s gardeners with local food pantries
As food pantries continue to experience unprecedented demand, home gardeners have the opportunity to be a solution for eliminating hunger and malnutrition in their community by donating healthy homegrown produce to feed those in need.
Bonnie Plants, the largest grower of vegetable and herb plants for home gardens in the U.S., is partnering with The Home Depot and AmpleHarvest.org to empower gardeners to grow for good this season and #DonateYourHarvest to local food pantries.
Through this partnership, Bonnie Plants will donate $250,000 to AmpleHarvest.org, a nonprofit that connects home and community gardeners to food pantries to share their surplus harvests instead of letting it go to waste.
“We’re calling on all gardeners to join us in growing for good this season to experience how rewarding it feels to use your garden for something amazing like feeding your community,” said Mike Sutterer, President & CEO of Bonnie Plants.
“By growing your garden with Bonnie Plants, you’ll be sure to have a plentiful harvest to share with your local food pantry. Just one tomato plant can generate 15 or more pounds of tomatoes to help feed your local community!”
Gardeners can ensure they will have an amazing harvest with lots of surplus veggies and herbs to donate by expanding their garden with the Bonnie Plants Harvest Select line, available exclusively at The Home Depot.
Whether they’re disease-resistant, heat-tolerant, space-savers, or produce abundant harvests, the Harvest Select line includes varieties like Stellar Tomato, Fresh Bites Orange Pepper, and Prizm Kale that are designed for gardening success.
“Growing a bountiful vegetable and herb garden at home has never been easier thanks to the innovations in Bonnie’s Harvest Select line.” said Dan Stuppiello, Division Merchandise Manager of Live Goods at The Home Depot.
