Lakewood Ranch, in partnership with The Junior League of Manatee County, EarthFare, and EarthBox Garden Center, are excited to announce the ‘One Garden at a Time’ event hosted at The Market at Lakewood Ranch!
‘One Garden at a Time’ is a healthy eating initiative for local schools, encouraging healthy eating habits from a young age by introducing a food to fork mindset.
Participants are invited to “buy one, give one” where they have the opportunity to attend a live EarthBox planting demonstration and afterwards, take their box home. For each box purchased, a box will be donated to a local east county elementary school.
Online registration is now closed, boxes may be purchased at the event this Sunday at The Market between 10am-2pm, for $35.
Available EarthBoxes are:
– Pizza & Pasta Box: Tomato, Onion, Basil, Oregano
