Southwood’s 8th Annual Plant a Row for the Hungry
9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., Saturday, March 23
Southwood Garden Center, 9025 S. Lewis, Tulsa, OK
Southwood Landscape & Garden Center announces its 8th annual Plant a Row for the Hungry event benefitting the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma. Customers receive a free tomato plant, up to 10 per person, in exchange for a non-perishable food donation to the Food Bank. The 2012 event raised more than 7,000 lbs of food, the equivalent of 5,932 meals. OSU Master Gardeners will be on-hand, along with Southwood staff, to offer gardening tips and information. The Plant-a-Row program encourages vegetable gardeners to plant extra and donate the abundance back to the Food Bank for distribution. Donations of fresh produce may be made directly to the Food Bank (all year on weekdays) or at a follow-up Plant a Row event at Southwood on June 29.
