Growing Goodness

We’re only a few weeks into fall and already missing the warm, vibrant days of summer … but comforted by the following video of Timberland’s Victory Garden in full bloom.

The Victory Garden has taken up residence on the front lawn of our corporate headquarters for 3 years now, expanding each summer to offer a broader variety of vegetables, herbs and flowers … which in turn increases the amount of support we’re able to give to the NH Food Bank.

If you’re not familiar with the model, we (humbly) think it’s a pretty good one: Timberland employees built the raised garden beds, plant the seeds, tend to the growing “crops” and pick, pull or otherwise harvest the good when they’re ripe.  The produce is then sold at the Timberland “farm stand,” located in our front lobby.  Employees get good, fresh-from-the-ground veggies, the proceeds go to the NH Food Bank … and we’re putting our corporate landscape to good, green use.  See for yourself:

Have questions about starting a victory garden in your own yard or company?  Inquire here and we’ll have someone from the Timberland Victory Garden committee get back in touch.  And remember … only 149 days til spring …
