...and We're Off!

Category: Seeds for the Needy Project | Posted: Mon Mar 17, 2008 3:21 pm

I am happy to report that my Need for Seed (Seeds for the Needy) project is already taking off! I am sending out the first round of seeds today!

I feel really good doing this project. Gardening is not merely good food (with the nutrition still in it), but good for the soul. I believe helping someone to feed themselves is is uplifting to both the giver and the receiver. Plus, to actually have something from one's own efforts--rather than a handout--is important to people meanwhile building confidence.

Gardening is a great family project--everyone can participate. I have some folks growing out stuff for the elderly in the neighborhood.

This is very fulfilling.
Robin

Your idea is definately a winner Robin and I'm glad you're making a difference for others. I hope all their seeds germinate and produce healthy crops.

I have just sent out my THIRD round of seed "care packages"! I have mailed dozens of "gardens" to families.

Thanks for the positive feedback.
