Oaken Update – May, 2014

Ready, set...grow!

At Oaken we’re all about encouraging growth. And now that spring has finally sprung, we’ve decided to help things along. We’re holding a garden photo contest, and if you join in you could win a $500 GIC!*

The way it works is simple. Between now and June 30, 2014, just share beautiful photos of your garden or plants on Facebook and Twitter. Use the hashtag #GrowWithOaken when you post and you’ll be entered in our contest. (You can also email photos to us at newsletter@oaken.com.)

On July 7, 2014 we’ll draw one lucky winner from the entries and award that person a $500 GIC.

We’d love to help you get your garden started with an Oaken leaf made of seeded paper—a great way to get growing. If you missed out on this offer last month (or would like another sample) don’t hesitate to get in touch. Just reply to this email, remembering to include your name and address, and we’ll send you your free seed paper today.

*No purchase necessary. Contest ends midnight ET on June 30, 2014. Odds of winning depend on the total eligible entries received. Contest excludes residents of Quebec. For full contest rules and regulations visit growwithoaken.com.
