Garden Organic

You can grow your own fragrant basil, chives or thyme plants every time you butter
your bread thanks to a partnership between Yeo Valley Organic and Garden Organic.
Yeo Valley Organic’s Spreadable packs are the cream of the crop this spring, with every
tub offering shoppers free herb seeds to grow at home.

There will be three herb packs, sourced from the Organic Gardening Catalogue, to
collect from mid-April to June with growing instructions and advice from the
sustainable gardening charity.

“Spring has sprung in your spread this month!” says Garden Organic’s CEO Fiona
Taylor. “We’re really delighted to be teaming up with Yeo Valley Organic for this lovely
giveaway. Just a sprig of herbs can elevate a sandwich to another level and we’re
showing that they’re really easy to grow. You could even fill the empty tubs with
compost and grow them on a sunny windowsill.”

Holly Twiss, Yeo Valley Organic brand manager, said: “We know that great organic
dairy starts from the ground up so we’re proud to be partnering with Garden Organic
to give our shoppers an extra special treat. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a keen
gardener or just starting out, we want to inspire everyone to make good food choices
and experience the joy of delicious home-grown food.”

Garden Organic will also be Yeo Valley Organic’s charity of the quarter between April
and June.

“It couldn’t be a better partnership,” adds Fiona. “Yeo Valley Organic share our organic
ethos and a commitment to bringing delicious sustainable food to people that’s grown
in a way that nurtures the soil, reduces food waste and supports the planet.”

The delicious dairy offer will be available on 170,000 400g packs of Yeo Valley Organic
Spreadable – a blend of organic butter and rapeseed oil - while stocks last. The product
will be available in Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Asda stores.
Feeling lucky? Between 22 April and 6 May there’ll also be a chance to win one of 10
organic gardening kits to boost your own growing through Yeo Valley Organic’s ‘Dairy-
Go-Round’ competition.

fabulous Garden Organic prize - which includes a Garden Organic membership, free
online workshop and copy of its Principles of Organic Gardening guide. Membership
benefits include a 10 per cent discount on products from the Organic Gardening
Catalogue and free or discounted entry to partner gardens and workshops and events.
You’ll also be able to get immediate organic grow-your-own advice via an exclusive
members’ magazine, monthly newsletter and online members-only area of the website.
From 1 st April to 30 th June, Garden Organic will be one of three charities available for
consumers to donate their Yeokens to raise money for good causes. At the end of the
