Help End Hunger with The Dinner Garden

I found this website a few days ago, I think it's such a great idea. The Dinner Garden gives free seeds to anyone who wants to start a garden; according to their website $5 of seeds will feed a family of seven for an entire year! I've requested a seed pack myself and put through a donation to cover it. I think once I get more listings up on Etsy I'll do a sale with part of the proceeds going to TDG. The website says they have a pretty big backlog of requests, they have the seeds but they need donations to cover the postage. I read somewhere once that investing $50 in seeds grows over $1,000 worth of produce, with the economy the way it is every little bit helps.

What a wonderful website. I have bookmarked it, and I will go back to it later, to do my part.

Thanks for the link. I'm in the process of planting some things right now, but still have others I want to plant later.

A very laudable effort in 'greening' the planet. Let's just hope that their programs is not taken advantage by some who see big bucks from selling those seeds.
