State Agricultural Officials Celebrate “Plant Something Day” with Massachusetts Schools

BOSTON – Tomorrow, Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources (MDAR) Commissioner John Lebeaux and Assistant Commissioner Jason Wentworth will tour gardens at elementary and high schools across the Commonwealth, and join the students in planting seedlings in honor of national “Plant Something Day.”

“Plant Something Day” aims to encourage consumers to support their local nurseries, garden centers, landscapers and floriculture growers by purchasing and planting something in their yard or local community. Massachusetts is home to approximately 1,039 farms in floriculture, nursery, greenhouse and sod that employ more than 4,000 workers and in 2012 generated $158 million in sales.
