What is GRO1000?
The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company established GRO1000 as a commitment to install 1,000 gardens and green spaces in the United States and select international sites by 2018. The last installation will be completed in 2018, which coincides with the 150th anniversary of the founding of the company. GRO1000 creates a partnership of national and local groups to collectively advocate for and demonstrate the benefits of gardening and green space development in local communities.

Donate What You Can
Help those in your community and donate extra produce. In today’s economy, many people are in need of fresh produce. Over 49 million Americans live in households that experience hunger or the risk of hunger daily. Almost 17 million people facing hunger each day are children. The Plant A Row for the Hungry (PAR) mission is to provide an avenue for individuals, corporations and over 84 million gardening households in the U.S. to help America’s most vulnerable citizens and the food agencies serving them.

Good Reasons to Grow Edibles
Nothing beats the taste and nutrition of fresh-picked vegetables. Growing and eating from your own garden can:

  • improve your health,
  • save you money,
  • increase your sustainability,
  • decrease your carbon footprint, and
  • most important, your garden can help you and a lot of people in need.
