start a garden today
Rosslyn's mysterious and intriguing undergound Safeway is now selling living organic herbs. These are an actual herb plant growing in genuine earth in a small pot. The idea is that you trim away leaves and stems as needed, while you continue to water and grow the herb. Remember that guy who wanted everyone to start a garden? His ideas just didn't seem practical to me. But now everyone -- even a person living in a one-bedroom apartment on the third floor of an apartment building -- can start a garden in the middle of winter!
Shenandoah Growers produces these herbs. The herbs are grown in greenhouses near Harrisonburg (about nine hours by bike southwest of Arlington) and shipped live to Rosslyn. Shenandoah Growers started as a small, Virginia-based business twenty-one years ago. It's now become a leading supplier of fresh herbs. Shenandoah Growers has impressive business principles. But that's not all. You can get a Shenandoah Growers' living organic herb at the Rosslyn Safeway for $2.99 ($2.50 with your Safeway Bonus Card!). Thank you, Shenandoah Growers!
