Tractor Supply in Muhlenberg Township helps young people get growing with Future Gardeners Kit

Garden kit provides hands-on introduction to world of fresh, homegrown produce.

The Temple Tractor Supply is providing free garden kits to local children to teach the basics of at-home gardening.

On May 18, 2024, customers can stop by the store located at 5370 Allentown Pike to receive a TSC Future Gardeners Kit, while supplies last. A Team Member will be available to answer questions and explain the best ways to nurture and care for the future garden, while sharing the importance of eating fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs.

Each kit includes essentials like seed packs, topsoil, a bucket, and directions for watering and caring for the seedlings as they grow, providing children with a first-hand opportunity to learn about plant life and produce.

“At Tractor Supply, we strive to educate and inspire underserved communities and the next generation about all things Out Here,” said Temple store manager, Christy Blantz.

“The unfortunate reality is that many young people lack access to fresh produce, let alone an opportunity to see how it grows. With these kits, we can share our knowledge and provide a fun opportunity to discover the thrill of growing fruits and vegetables.”
