I am all about natural living, I’d like to one day have an entire farm and grow all of my own fresh herbs. We have several small farms in our community but I’d love to see a large one. Something everyone could really use and benefit from.
Triscuit has teamed up with Urban Farming, a non-profit organization, to create 50 new community-based home farms throughout the United States. As part of the Home Farming Movement, Triscuit has included plantable herb seed cards in 4 million boxes of Triscuits to help encourage people to grow their own vegetables and herbs! Triscuit has also created a website that includes information about growing vegetables at home, a crop guide, community forums, and lots more!
What Triscuit is doing is helping to make a difference. They actually sent my family a few boxes of crackers along with money to start our own mini garden. I of course love basil and dill so we planted those in pots. Living in a condo doesn’t allow much room for a garden so pots are what we have to use. With as much rain as we have here in Oregon it didn’t take very long for our plants to take off. My husband waters them as it’s gotten warmer.
We were able to create a fun cheeseball with the herbs. Cheese balls are kind of a family favorite so we actually enjoyed doing something different this time. You can use almost any kind of cheese, throw in some pecans or your favorite nuts and some fresh herbs and you have a delightful snack.
Throw it on a Triscuit and you have a healthy snack!
