If you are like me you try a lot of new things. You’ve been through all the seed catalogs and your seeds are making their way to you right now. You’ve probably over done it again in your enthusiasm. You have saved seed from seasons past. You have seeds from failed experiments! You have enough extra to get one newbie gardener going!
This is how it works. All of you veteran gardeners out there, I’m talking to you! I just mailed four six newbie gardeners enough extra seeds for all of them to have lush edible gardens this season!
Pick a newbie gardener on hyperlocavore.com and send them a mix of various seeds, flowers, herbs, fruits and vegetables to help them get growing this season! It took me about an hour to do this for four different people.
What’s in it for you? Well, the pleasure of giving of course! I just mailed four six gardens and I cannot wait to see how my fledgling gardeners grow.
To the newbie gardeners, I can’t guarantee you will wind up with a seed packet in the mail. I can’t guarantee that you will be sent your favorite fruits, vegetables or herbs. If you receive something you do not intend to plant I only ask that you find someone in the seed swap forum who would like to plant them, and then send them on. This is an experiment! Hopefully a fun and fruitful one!
Whether you are a newbie gardener or an experienced grower sign up for The Great Let’s Get Growing Seed Share! It’s free. All I ask is that you share your gardens and your experiences on hyperlocavore.com and pay it forward.
Be sure to check out Fight Back Fridays!
I’m proud to be one of the newbie gardeners who will soon be on my way growing some of my own food. Great idea, and thanks so much for helping out.
I know very little about gardening, but do have seeds to share, and hope to help out others once I get a little knowledge.
You’re welcome! It was a lot of fun!
Taking inventory of what I’ve got, and what I’ve got to spare, and probably will with some nj locals trancekat and erin k. once I get some seedlings started
Liz, thanks for stopping by my site and I think what you’re doing with the “Let’s Get Growing Seed Share” is awesome! I think the collective efforts of people and groups like yours are really going to make a difference. I look forward to following your great program as well.
Thanks for coming by and being so encouraging!
This is a fantastic idea. Thanks for setting this up, and for joining in today’s Fight Back Fridays carnival.
