My company did one of the coolest things for earth day. Since the CEO is a vegan and we're a "certified green" office (whatever that means), we try to leave a small footprint on the environment. It also means we tend to make a BIG DEAL our of this little holiday.
But this year was probably the coolest by far!
In a quick meeting, we were given little pots, soil, and our choice of vegetable seeds. I took a pack of the Beefsteak tomatoes and a pack of Ringmaster onions. Here's the contest:
Each week, for 12 weeks, we are to take a picture of our plant and post it on the company blog. For each week we do this, we'll get a raffle ticket. After 12 weeks, they will draw 2 tickets. Each winning ticket recieves a $50 gift card to Henry's (the local farmer's market style store). I adore Henry's! $50 would mean pretty much a month's worth of food for me (and I mean good stuff, like fresh fruits, veggies, and meats).
Not to mention, I wouldn't have to buy tomatoes and onions. ;)
Keep your fingers crossed for me! Little Red (my tomatoe plant) and Peely (my onion plant) will be going for bust! Let's just hope the bunnies in my area don't get a whiff of this!
