Tractor Supply Co. shows families how to ‘Get Growing’

The Record-Herald

Tractor Supply Company, 1650 Columbus Ave. in Washington C.H., is inviting parents to unlock the hidden potential of their backyard with a family garden.

To introduce children to the joy of growing food in their backyard, Tractor Supply is hosting “Get Growing,” a five-day gardening event May 11-15. During the main event on Saturday, May 14, the store will feature a “first seed” station for children to plant a seed, take it home and watch it grow.

The Get Growing event will also feature community groups and activities, including a car wash and bake sale on May 14 at Tractor Supply Company from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“A lifetime of gardening can begin with a simple bean seed; it’s fun to watch a child plant a seed into soil for the first time and know they’ll soon have a sprout,” said Bob Minzler, manager of the Washington C.H. Tractor Supply store. “It’s a hobby that instills a lifelong appreciation for where our food comes from and brings families together through hard work and great-tasting food.”

Tractor Supply Co. carries all the supplies a family needs to grow a garden, including mulches, live plants, regular and organic seeds, and garden tools.

Contact the Washington C.H. Tractor Supply store at 740-335-0651 for additional details about the Get Growing gardening event.
