We'd like Carl to grow in our garden, but in the meantime...

Carl Edwards, driver of the No. 60 ScottsMiracle-Gro Ford Fusion, tops his fantastic week of PR and will be in the D.C. area tomorrow for a very cool promotion.

Carl will help plant community gardens at the Robert F. Lederer Youth Center Community Garden at 3:00 p.m. tomorrow and encourage fans to take the GroGood pledge to grow a garden for the greater good and provide fresh produce to the hungry.

Additionally, Carl will speak to fans at Richmond International Raceway (RIR) on Saturday (5/2) at 4:45 p.m. to tell them about the four GroGood edible gardens planted at RIR. The gardens are a part of the GroGood Campaign and were created in partnership with The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company, Plant a Row for the Hungry and Feeding America. Each garden will provide fresh produce to those at risk for hunger in the Richmond area.

To launch the GroGood pledge campaign, The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company will donate 1 million pounds of produce to Feeding America and call on Americans to help double that donation by pledging to grow and donate an additional 1 million pounds of fresh produce to help feed those at risk for hunger. Fans can get involved and take the GroGood pledge by visiting the ScottsMiracle-Gro display adjacent to the hospitality pavilion during race weekend or by visit
