We’re back with Angela Hoffman and our #NVSeedToSnack stories, a behind-the-scenes look at the farmers who help bring Nature Valley products to life. Today, Angela explains her farm’s relationship with nature, and why the land requires the sunny, rainy and even snowy days, to grow a bountiful oat crop.
We are excited to bring you a new series called #NVSeedToSnack where we share the stories of farmers, like Angela Hoffman, who help bring Nature Valley products to life. Angela and her family have farmed their land for generations and today grow oats used in Nature Valley products. Check back tomorrow to learn why nature is the real “boss” around the Hoffman farm!
Happy National Public Lands Day! In celebration, together with @NPCAPics we encourage you to get involved and help give our national parks the support they so need and deserve. Follow the link in our bio to find volunteer opportunities near you! : @wilderness_addict
It takes a lot of work to keep our national parks pristine and safe. In fact, our parks are facing an $11 BILLION shortfall in maintenance funding. On National Public Lands Day (this Saturday!), 200,000+ volunteers are doing their part -- coming together at events nationwide to help repair trails, pack out garbage, and make sure our parks stay clean and safe for everyone. Tomorrow we will be supporting restoration projects with @NPCApics at Mount Rainier National Park (pictured), San Antonio Missions National Historic Park, Petrified Forest National Park and Greenbelt Park. Follow the link in our bio to find out how you can get involved.
On #ParkingDay Nature Valley is bringing the power of nature a little closer to you. In four cities we transformed ordinary parking spaces into interactive parklets for the community to enjoy!
If you are in these cities and want to check us out, here is where we are at:
- Boise: Idaho St. & Banncock St
- Portland: Corner of NW Glisan St & NW 12th Ave
- Seattle: Pine St & 1st Ave
- San Francisco: 3rd and Mission
"Wandering around the alpine line of Lewis Pass with the sun on our backs breathing in the crisp air...If you haven't been here, make it a bucket list place! This place is truly breathtaking” - @_southernthread
“Witnessing the last light of day from a mountain top is special privilege. There is no such thing as ‘conquering a mountain.’ The mountain is the one that dictates how far we go and what we can do safely while on its flanks. To reach the summit of Vesper Peak in WA required me to make two visits to the mountain. The first time as I neared the summit I was suddenly caught in a storm that required that I spent the night near the summit of the mountain, only to have to descend the next day in a complete whiteout. The next time I went was a beautiful day and the mountain granted me access to the summit for the first time just as the sun was setting.” - @moonmountainman
"Views that take your breath away. Some of the most beautiful places, however are also some of the most fragile and this is no exception. Damage in this fragile alpine environment takes decades to recover, if it can recover at all. With the privilege of being in these special places comes the responsibility to care for them and ensure we cause no damage." - @beckylynnsim
