National Garden Bureau, the non-profit organization promoting gardening on behalf of the horticulture industry, has a wonderful new feature on the NGB website, for use by garden centers, extension agents, master gardeners, garden writers, growers, public gardens and anyone else interested in free brochures and signage. As announced late last year, National Garden Bureau has proclaimed 2011 as the “Year of the Tomato” and the “Year of the Zinnia.”
To enable educators everywhere, NGB has created an informational brochure and signage for each crop. These useful tools are available to download and print at no charge from the NGB website. Simply click on the tab labeled “Downloads.”
For each “Year of the” crop there is a multi-page brochure full of beautiful photography and useful growing information, as well as a history and description of that flower or edible. There is a downloadable PDF for both an 8″ x 10″ sign and a 5″ x 7″ sign/bench card. In addition, the two NGB “Year of the” logos are available for downloading for use when promoting these two “Year of the” crops.
This is a completely new service offered by National Garden Bureau so we welcome input on how we can improve these offerings. We would also like feedback on how these products were used. Please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
