Tuesday, January 31st, 2017

Ornamental grass growing next to a benchWhat’s not to love about ornamental grasses? These easy-to-grow plants bring multiple seasons of movement, sound and color to your gardens and containers.

Their dramatic form provides a distinctive look and offers a good contrast for your other landscape plants.

Not only are ornamental grasses very adaptable and low-maintenance, they also have very few pest problems. They’re just about the perfect plant!

The first thing to think about when selecting a plant is its mature size. Because there are many different sizes and structures, finding the correct one for your space will make all the difference. Once you have your size, you’ll want to choose the color and texture that will provide the best look in your landscape.

When you purchase plants from us, it’s more than just buying something for yourself: you’re helping to feed someone who’s hungry! We are accomplishing this by partnering with community gardens across the nation. We will provide them with free plants to grow and then they will distribute the produce to the needy. So, from everyone who will benefit, allow us to say, “Thank you!”

We appreciate your business and look forward to continuing to serve you in the future.

Feeding The Hungry, One Plant At A Time

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017

GrowJoy, Inc is committed to helping alleviate hunger in our communities.

The idea behind our community service project can be summed up by the famous old saying: “If you give a man a fish, he eats for a day. If you teach a man to fish, he eats for a lifetime”.

Poverty exists all around us, including among some veterans and senior citizens. Churches and other organizations have started creating community gardens, and they often designate part of the garden as a place where needy people can learn to grow their own food. They give them a plot and teach them how to get started.

We are partnering with these types of community gardens and also with those whose main purpose is the donation of their harvest to the hungry, as well as with the community gardens that allow those with special needs to participate. Come harvest time, there are a lot of smiles all around, and plenty of good, nutritious veggies for people who really need the nourishment. And pretty soon after that, it’ll be planting time again.

We think this is a great idea, and we want to promote it. Therefore, GrowJoy, Inc. is going to provide the plants for outreach programs at community gardens around the country. We have already started forming partnerships and are planning to do so with many more gardens in the future.

We love growing plants and we have always wanted to do something that will have a continuing positive impact on the world. We are very thankful that we have now found it, and we want to thank our esteemed customers for being a part of this. With your continued support of our business, you’ll be participating with us in feeding the hungry!

If you know of a community garden that could benefit from our plants, please email us at gardens@growjoy.com

We appreciate your business!
