FREE Seeds to Start Your Own Garden!

So I was really stoked when I came across some information on "The Dinner Garden," a nonprofit corporation that gives free seeds, gardening supplies and advice to all people in the United States!  Their mission is simply to end hunger by enabling people to grow their own food.  Huge bonus besides saving moolah?  It's organic.  And it's conveniently in your backyard.

How does it work?  Well, they do rely heavily on donations, although "The Dinner Garden" also makes purchases from Main Street Seed and Supply. As they are nonprofit, all donations are tax deductible, so you can not only feel good about helping a good cause {if you'd like to donate money to them}, but you will also be "rewarded" come tax-time.

All you need to do is click here to receive your own free seeds! They offer several sites where you can pick them up for free, but if you're like me and don't live near one, they also offer a form you can fill out to request that they mail you some!  There is currently a waiting list to receive your seeds, but I'm sure it's well worth the wait!

Know what else I really love about this idea?  Not only will you save money and eat healthier, but what a fabulous way to bond and invest time with your children on such a great project as planting a garden together!  Plus, kids usually eat more of what they help prepare, so who knows?  Maybe your anti-veggie kid {if you've got one like me anyway!} will be snacking on some carrots & celery soon!

And another fabulous resource to utilize once you get your seeds is the World Food Garden website, where you'll find gardening blogs, how-to's and ever-important information on what and when to plant certain things.  You can either type in your address or use a zoom in on a map to show them exactly where you live, so they can offer you the perfect advice for your specific soil and weather!

Happy {and healthy} gardening!
