STEP RIGHT UP AND COME TO THE Washington County Fair (in Lake Elmo, Minnesota)!! This weekend, the Plantables Crew will be a part of this really fun annual event (we're in Building D). Come visit Owner Jim as he's roaming the fairgrounds enjoying all the fun and food!!
Ink Factory Tattoos and Body Piercing and Plantables (two awesome businesses in Hudson, WI) have teamed up to create one the most beautiful flower gardens around. Zinnias, dill, cosmos and basil are just some of plants that have sprouted from our Plantables' greeting cards. The Plantables crew have watered and tended to the garden all summer long. Please come see it!
Plantables was so honored to be part of the event today at 3M in St Paul, announcing the installation of honey bee hives on the 3M campus. The University of MN Bee Squad was there, and bee expert Dr. Marla Spivak gave a fascinating talk about the decline of the bee population. Our workers produced custom Bee Bombs with the 3M/U of M bee logo, and got to hand them out at this awesome event.
Since Plantables' inception, we have come across hundreds of amazingly kind people who are rooting for our venture to succeed. One of our biggest and earliest supporters is Sarah Bruch (pictured far left), who is the owner of The Purple Tree in downtown Hudson. Her wonderful store which promotes kindness, fairness, and love (to each other and to our planet) is truly a reflection of Sarah. The whole Plantables' crew can't thank our friend Sarah enough for all her encouragement and kindness.
Firecrackers aren't the only thing popping this time of year. Check out the beautiful flowers that have exploded out of our Plantables seed embedded paper. Each day, our workers and volunteers have watered and tended to several flower boxes and these are the fantastic results! Now, we're just waiting for the bees to come!
Happy 4th Everyone!!
Follow our progress as we get this venture up and running.
