WE DID IT! Together we provided hundreds of seeds to those in need! And 21 thousand views via 'likes' and 'shares' on Facebook!
NFPs supporting, enabling and empowering those in need to adopt self sustaining food gardening practices are grateful to the gardening community for contributing to their 'clients' looking to start their own food gardens! THANK YOU!!!
We as gardeners, can send excess seed at any time of year. Each of the NFPs listed below has a certified horticulturalist employed, and ready to look after the seeds, either to start the seeds, store the seeds or distribute to others facing crisis yet know how to start seeds :-) You can be assured the seeds will be looked after. Variety is welcome! Please help share the news on social media. A Facebook Group "Tiny Trowellers" has been created. Please join the conversation at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1283951395005787/

Vicky sent seeds and said "I have some seeds to donate and will do it tomorrow! A friend gave me a Spaghetti Squash, I saved the seeds, and planted some. 5 weeks later the vines are nearly a metre high with plenty of flowers developing, so it seems they are viable. It is such a substantial food!"
