Chipotle Celebrates National Plant a Seed Day With “Home Grown Chipotle” Garden Boxes

In celebration of National Plant a Seed Day, Chipotle Mexican Grill, announced a limited edition “Home Grown Chipotle” boxes.

The boxes will include everything you need to grow some of your favorite ingredients from Chipotle’s menu. Each kit includes: 6 Biodegradable Pots; 6 Soil Discs; 6 Garden Markers; Seeds: Bell Pepper, Cilantro, Jalapeno, Onion, Pinto Bean, Tomato; Instructions and Note from the Chipotle Team and will be available for purchase online HERE for a limited time starting tomorrow, March 20, on National Plant a Seed Day.

Chipotle is committed to sourcing locally and has purchased 29 million pounds of produce from local growers in 2018 alone. Whether your experienced gardener or just learning, the Home Grown Chipotle boxes provide an opportunity to interact with the brand in a new whole new way.

All proceeds from Home Grown Chipotle sales will be donated to Big Green, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that aims to build a healthier future for kids by connecting them to real food through a nationwide network of Learning Gardens and food literacy programs.

Chipotle will also be hosting local fundraisers tomorrow in the seven markets where Big Green works: Chicago, Denver, Detroit, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Memphis, and Pittsburgh. 33% of all proceeds from customers who mention the fundraiser when dining at a Chipotle in these markets will go directly to Big Green. 

Big Green is 100% committed and striving to {continue} building hundreds of outdoor “learning gardens” which teach children an understanding of real food, healthy eating, and garden skills through experimental learning and garden-based education that ties into existing education curriculum.
