Improving the World Through Gardening
Gardener's Supply actively promotes gardening as an important way for people to make the world a better place. We donate 8 percent of our pre-tax profits to support programs and organizations that are using gardening to improve the quality of people's lives and the health of our environment.
A cornerstone of our donations program is the Garden Crusader Awards, which recognize people across the country who are using gardening to improve the quality of life in their communities. Each year we select 21 winners and award more than $15,000 in cash and gardening products.
Gardener’s Supply also provides gifts to a number of non-profit organizations working on gardening, sustainable agriculture, the environment and hunger-related causes. Recipients include the American Community Gardening Association, the American Horticulture Therapy Association, and Plant a Row for the Hungry.
In Vermont, our company's local donations program helps support more than 50 community organizations. We also founded, and continue to be a lead sponsor for the Intervale Center, which oversees 350 acres of farmland and a wide range of urban farming initiatives in Burlington, Vt.
We are mindful about our company's environmental responsibility, and are pursuing a number of environmental initiatives to reduce our carbon footprint. To learn more, read Our Commitment to the Environment.
