No More Mowing – Veggies Growing!

Timberland Victory Garden, Stratham, NH

First Lady Michelle Obama isn’t the only one replacing green lawns with gardens … at Timberland’s New Hampshire headquarters, we’re into year two of our “Victory Garden” — raised beds growing everything from carrots and tomatoes to swiss chard and beets.  The garden was created last summer on open lawn in front of our building, and gained quick popularity among employees who purchase the freshly grown and picked goods all summer long (Victory Garden proceeds are donated to a local food bank).

    Kudos Ann Caron & Timberland Victory Garden workers
