Here's the press release:
RANDOM ACT OF PEPPERS PEPPER PLANT GIVEAWAY IN DOWNTOWN MINNEAPOLIS NOW
Over 2,000 organic pepper plants will be given away in two hours in Minneapolis’s Warehouse District today (Monday, June 10).
Haberman/ Modern Storytellers for Pioneers declared last Monday as "Free Tomato Day" and gave away 1,000 organic, heirloom tomato plants. They had so much fun that they are doing it again except this time they are spicing things up and it’s going to be double the fun: more than 2,000 organic pepper plants in two hours. Gardens of Eagan and Haberman have partnered to encourage everyone to cultivate their own garden, whether it’s one pot or a whole backyard, and enjoy a homegrown bounty.
Gardens of Eagan is a certified organic farm growing plants and produce since 1972. Gardens of Eagan believes every season is an opportunity to feed people great certified organic food. Haberman is a Minneapolis-based full service marketing firm that has a number of organic food clients, as well as its own company-run garden that staffers enjoy as an employee benefit.
