  • Spring Tour 2018

    Check out the places that we’ve been on our Spring Tour! From volunteering at community gardens to delighting locals at their farmer’s markets, we’ve spread goodness far and wide—and met some amazing folks along the ride.

    One of our first stops was El Buen Samaritano, an Austin-based nonprofit organization committed to helping families in Central Texas lead healthy, productive and secure lives through high quality and affordable healthcare, education and basic needs services. As part of their community garden initiative, El Buen teaches the local community how to grow fresh fruits and vegetables. Their efforts improve these folks’ access to nutritious food, all the while also supplementing their budget.

    We began our partnership with El Buen on Plant Something Day in May 2017, when Mrs. Meyer’s and Whole Foods awarded the garden with a grant intended to bolster its efforts within their community. Almost one year later, El Buen has put their grant money to work – and it has shown. The garden is beautiful and on track for a grand re-opening later this year. On Monday, March 26, we brought a team of volunteers to the garden to take the steps toward the grand reopening. Volunteers stained the fence, weeded the garden and planted peppers.

    Welcome to Serenbe

    Serenbe, Georgia is a sustainable-community in the Chattahoochee Hill Country near Atlanta. Founded in 2004, it’s filled with lush preserved forests, winding pathways, organic produce and people committed to living a greener life. Needless to say, it’s impressively sustainable compared to typical American neighborhoods.



    Like the folks of Serenbe, we at Mrs. Meyer’s have a passion for sustainability. For us, that often starts in our own backyards by planting one garden at a time using natural materials and a little bit of elbow grease.

    TIPS FOR INSPIRATION

    • We re-covered our ironing board with pretty new fabric long ago—you should too! We recommend a heavy cotton fabric, like duck.
    • Suspend a clothesline from your shelving for extra drying room.
    • We love the homey touches in our laundry room. The clock and houseplant make it a more pleasant room to be in—not just a workspace!
