ORGANIC CEREAL PIONEER NATURE’S PATH IS SUPPORT THIS MONTH’S NATIONAL ALLOTMENT WEEK. HERE’S WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT
Nature’s Path, the organic gluten-free cereal pioneer, is a champion of the outdoors. In fact, its guiding ethos is ‘Always leave the earth better than you found it’, something that’s shared by anyone with a love of gardening. The company’s commitment to the environment is rooted in sustainability and it is an active supporter of community and urban gardening initiatives. It also maintains a large garden at its HQ – with produce distributed among its staff.
That’s why the family firm is pleased to be supporting this year’s National Allotment Week, 13–19 August. Organised by The National Allotment Society, National Allotment Week celebrates allotment plots up and down the UK, encouraging everyone to explore what their local community can offer in terms of growing your own.
The week highlights the benefit of allotments – from getting active outdoors, to producing your own food, to meeting and socialising with a range of people locally. Vital for wildlife, these ‘green corridors’ also safeguard land that would otherwise be built on. Just one metre of land can support hundreds of different species.
GROWING FOR EVERYONE
This year’s theme is ‘Living and Growing’. It highlights the importance of growing your own food and bringing gardening into your life. And if there’s a waiting list for an allotment in your area? Don’t be put off. Without waiting lists, allotment authorities cannot assess demand, so it’s great to show as much interest as possible, so that more plots can be made available. And, in the meantime, even growing herbs on your windowsill or tomatoes in a hanging basket can help hone your horticultural skills.
