THE PLANT SOMETHING MOVEMENT
A flourishing initiative backed by the Colorado Nursery and Greenhouse Association, Plant Something Colorado is part of a nationwide movement that began with Plant-Something.org. Plant Something Colorado inspires people to improve their quality of life by putting down roots.
CULTIVATING ENGAGEMENT ON SOCIAL MEDIA
The #PlantSomethingCO Photo Contest
To grow awareness and engagement around the beautiful benefits of plants, we created a grassroots (see what we did there) social media photo contest that helped drive gardeners to CNGA’s statewide nursery partners. A fun, engaging social media presence (combined with a webinar for participating nurseries and a series of Facebook LIVE events) gave the non-profit a simple and measurable way to strengthen the Plant Something Colorado initiative. With four easy steps and awesome prizes, people across Colorado are encouraged to stay engaged and keep planting.
