April has been quite a whirlwind here at Lightlife, and the fun is just beginning!
Earlier this month I traveled to Detroit to visit our new partner, Urban Farming™, in action. Outside of the Fox2 news station Urban Farming™ representatives and volunteers planted a community garden that will end up providing fresh vegetables to community members and their local food pantry.
Seeing a group of individuals work together to provide fresh food for a community was an incredible sight to see and it truly brought what Urban Farming™ does to light for me. This was no ordinary garden either – they had a sustainable solar powered irrigation system set up so that rain water could be collected and pumped out through the irrigation hoses!
Of course I had to bring something along that could contribute to the party, so I brought our new grillable Smart Dogs for everyone to enjoy.Next up in exciting things for Lightlife was the Baltimore VegFest! If you’ve been following along on our Facebook and Twitter pages, you may have seen pictures of me down in Baltimore. We raffled off Plant Our Future starter kits, handed out samples of our grillable Smart Dogs, and talked with attendees about our brand new frozen entrees and veggie burgers.
Everyone was excited about our new frozen line, and very enthusiastic about starting their own home garden. I hope to see pictures from our new friends and their gardens soon!
Stay tuned later this month – I’ve got an exciting announcement to share about some of the fun things we have planned at Lightlife this summer. :)
