Harris Seeds is a proud sponsor of the 3rd Annual NY Locavore Challenge this September. The NY Locavore Challenge is a first of its kind, month-long campaign aimed at engaging consumers across the state in actively supporting the local organic food movement.
Harris Seeds proudly sponsors “Challenge of the Day” this September 11, 2012. Today, participants across New York are challenged to plant an organic herb or window garden. Raising herbs indoors is a simple way to add aroma and flavor to wintertime cooking, and it’s a manageable project for beginner gardeners.
To get started, gardeners can find a wide selection of untreated herb seeds, organic herb seeds, and organic fertilizers at harrisseeds.com. Harris Seeds also offers organic vegetable seeds, untreated vegetable seeds, untreated cut flower seeds, organic vegetable and herb plugs, and OMRI listed supplies for organic growers and gardeners alike.
Today’s Locavore Challenge of the Day is part of NOFA NY’s unique (nofany.org), month-long event aimed at engaging consumers in seeking and using locally grown organic foods. Registered participants receive daily Locavore Challenge & Tip emails, and they can choose from a wide variety of family-friendly activities and challenges.
