Subaru Grows Gardening Support

Subaru Grows Gardening Support


 Commitment to environmental excellence 

Northwest Flower & Garden Show attendees might be surprised to find a garden on the sky bridge that includes a car. Not just any car – the all-new 2014 Subaru Forester.

That’s because Subaru owners have told them how important gardening, and a clean environment, are to them. Subaru sponsors events and shows that fuel those passions. Along with sponsorship, Subaru gets involved with creating programming that gardening consumers enjoy and can learn from and apply at home in their own garden.

At the 2011 show Subaru created a garden based on the legend of Paul Bunyon.

Subaru doesn’t just talk the talk – they walk the walk. In 2003, Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc. became the first automotive assembly facility to be designated as a Backyard Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation. Over 800 acres serve as a home for birds and animals, including white-tail deer, red-tail hawks, blue heron, Canadian geese, mallard ducks, beavers, coyote, snapping turtles and the bald eagle.

Subaru has also partnered with Rodale, Inc. and Organic Gardening magazine. Organic Gardening has been a community partner of Subaru in events across the nation, including the Subaru Fall Festival at Greensgrow Farms and the Philadelphia International Flower Show. Working together they present great garden speakers and leaders in the organic gardening community to audiences at these shows.

Northwest Flower & Garden Show attendees will be able to see two such pioneers in organic gardening: Therese Ciesinski, Managing Editor of Organic Gardening, and Coach Mark Smallwood, Executive Director of Rodale Institute.

Therese Ciesinski will be speaking on Wednesday, February 20 at 11:30 am on “Women In The Garden: Breaking Down the Kitchen Walls.” Coach Mark Smallwood will be speaking on Thursday, February 21 at 3:00 pm on “America’s Organic Movement: Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow.” These will be two thought-provoing seminars you won’t want to miss. ~ Janet
