Burpee Home Gardens has taken its “Grow Anywhere Tour” on the road, and Brentwood residents were on the receiving end yesterday of 1,300 pounds of produce and 450 vegetable plants.
The 10,000-mile tour across the country, which began in March, will distribute 13,000 vegetable plants and 30,000 pounds of produce by the time it wraps up its mission later this month. The company also is distributing free gardening information and support to show the country how easy it is to grow healthy food anywhere.
Brentwood High School was selected as a one of 23 national stops by a Facebook voting competition earlier this year during which more than 1.25 million votes were cast. For hosting the tour, the school also received 50 vegetable plants for its school garden.
