Carl Edwards Gets His Hands Dirty

Fresh from his death-defying crash at Talladega, Carl Edwards high-tailed it to our nation's capital and the Robert F. Lederer Youth Center Community Garden. While there on Thursday, the driver planted some veggies with the kids and encouraged fans to take the GroGood pledge "to grow a garden for the greater good" and provide fresh produce to the hungry.

And today at 4:45 p.m., Carl will speak at Richmond International Raceway to explain more 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
