Edible Landscaping Calendar

Rosalind Creasy – Edible Landscaping

I have always had a little vegetable garden at the house. Mainly for peppers and tomatoes and a few herbs I use for cooking. The garden can be seen through the picture window in the kitchen. I like the colors in my garden, but never really thought about using a vegetables as landscaping.

I am now rethinking that. According to Rosalind Creasy, vegetables can add color to your landscape as well as fresh produce to your table. From her website, “Gardening can be easy, healthy, inexpensive, and best of all, in can be done just about anywhere. As far back as 1970, Rosalind Creasy was a pioneer in the field of Edible Landscaping. Her work has since revolutionized the way that many of us think about gardening. Cooking from the garden, eating organic, and eating fresh are all possible and not as hard as you might think.”

So how did I stumble into Edible Landscaping? Since this is a blog on promotional items it should be no surprise that it was a promo item, the Edible Landscapes calendar from Norwood, that led the way. The calendar was done in partnership with Rosalind Creasy, and features from her work six tips for creating an edible landscape and six healthy mouthwatering recipes to try out.

As part of the GOING GREEN line from Norwood, the #1253 Edible Landscapes calendar is printed on 30% recycled paper, using soy/plant based inks. The #1253 Edible Landscapes calendar measures 11″w x 10″h closed, 11″w x 19″h open.

In the promotional products industry it is still the humble calendar that gives the highest impressionism ratio to cost, with most people looking at a calendar about 14 times per day in an office or home setting. As a marketing tool it is a great way to keep your name in front of your clients, and I think the #1253 Edible Landscapes calendar is a great marketing platform for garden centers, landscape services, farmers markets, groceries, and any other business related to healthy living and gardening.
