NORWAY, IOWA (April 18, 2018) – Simply Organic, a brand of Frontier Co-op, is pleased to be a sponsor of the New York Botanical Garden’s Edible Academy, elevating Simply Organic’s mission to make organic food more accessible and spread the pure, simple joy of cooking.


Simply Organic’s sponsorship will support The New York Botanical Garden’s new Edible Academy, a program that will offer interactive cooking activities, advocate for sustainable organic farming and educate new audiences on the many uses of spices and herbs in the preparation of flavorful and wholesome meals.

“We are elated to partner with the New York Botanical Garden to revolutionize and enhance its garden-based educational programs and offer life-changing opportunities to children and adults from the Bronx and Greater New York City,” explained Director of Marketing Ellen Bouchard.

Simply Organic offers more than 70 bottled spices and 50 seasoning mixes, flavors and extracts—all certified organic.  “Just as Simply Organic continues to work diligently to source our organic spices and seasonings through direct, honest and genuine relationships with our grower partners, the New York Botanical Garden’s Edible Academy will become an amazing example of an edible gardening and nutritional education center. Together we will be able to positively impact a greater number of kids and adults than we ever could alone” remarked Bouchard. 

Additional efforts to further the mission of Simply Organic are funded by an annual grant program called the Simply Organic Giving Fund that supports training and community projects for organic farmers where our spices are grown, as well as a variety of organizations and events that study, support and promote organic agriculture.
