GRO1000 in Action in Pasadena, California

Miracle-Gro is entering the third year of its partnership with the Tournament of Roses. But ScottsMiracle-Gro’s support of the Tournament of Roses is not just about the Rose Parade. Through its GRO1000 commitment, ScottsMiracle-Gro is helping the City of Pasadena be greener and improve the lives of its residents through greenscape refurbishments.

On November 24, Miracle-Gro and the Pasadena Tournament of Roses worked to expand a natural pollinator garden at Muir Ranch and distribute fresh produce and Thanksgiving-themed food boxes to local families in need.

Muir Ranch, located on the campus of John Muir High School in the Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD), is a two-acre urban farm that grows more than 1,000 produce items per month. Produce grown at the farm, and at other regional farms, supports a community-supported agriculture (CSA) initiative where boxes of farm fresh produce are sold throughout the Pasadena community.

Catch highlights of the recent GRO1000 garden expansion and holiday food donation drive at Pasadena’ Muir Ranch.

Be sure to tune in to the Rose Parade on New Year’s Day at 11 a.m. EST to see Miracle-Gro’s GRO1000-themed float. And watch the Parade commercial-free on HGTV.
