Seed Catalogs FREE. 2010-2011. Dream. Garden. Grow Inspired...

I encourage parents, educators, schools, garden clubs, civic groups to order free seed catalogs; they're excellent teaching resources!

If I had a class of students, I would send the list of FREE SEED CATALOGS home so parents can order for rainy day reading. This is free education at it's best, in my humble opinion.

If we can inspire children (and adults) to learn about nutrition, biodiversity and self-sustaining agriculture, perhaps they will learn to make more intelligent food choices and promote healthier living. I have read many seed catalogs in their entirety. I believe and hope future generations will come to understand how wonderful growing our own organic food and saving seed truly is. My daugher Ava understood what a seed was long before her second birthday. It is never too early to give the gift of gardening to our babies.

Let us also teach our children what an heirloom vegetable is, how to save seeds, and which seeds can even be saved! Have fun. Grow something and happy harvesting!

PEOPLE Magazine Article - On Newsstands Nationwide Current Issue...






UPDATE:
PEOPLE Magazine, Heroes Among Us
Once Hungry, She Now Feeds Others
May 30, 2011, page 74. CURRENT ISSUE.


April 2011, I was contacted by People Magazine to be included as a "Hometown Hero" for my volunteer work of harvesting fresh fruits and vegetables to feed the hungry. We finished the People Magazine Interview and photo shoot a few weeks ago. I understand the "lemon lady" article may publish in this week's edition of People Magazine.

Friends and Family, please keep a look out at newsstands nationwide for People Magazine.

More important - Have YOU walked on by a fruit tree today?
Do nothing. Nothing will ever get done. I can't harvest every fruit tree in America, all by myself.

FREE Fruit Harvesting for the Hungry.
FREE pick-up and delivery to local food pantries.

Any one of us can step up and make a difference to those in need. Any Town, USA. Please be inspired to help. Fruit truly matters. Thank you.

People Magazine Writers and Editors:
THANK YOU for your interest in sharing my story with your readers. This most definitely will inspire others to donate fresh fruit from their own trees to feed the hungry!

Random Acts of Kindness. What do you believe in?


“Motherhood has completely changed me. It's just about like the most completely humbling experience that I've ever had. I think that it puts you in your place because it really forces you to address the issues that you claim to believe in and if you can't stand up to those principles when you're raising a child, forget it.” Diane Keaton
___________________

Issues I believe in:

Fruit to food banks. Random Acts of Kindness. All children deserve fresh apples, oranges, lemons at their breakfast table. Won't you please help The Lemon Lady save our world one little lemon at a time?

Random Acts of Kindness In Action:

One Lemon Lady Letter at a time. One person. One tree. It all begins somewhere. Drop a flyer at the first fruit tree you see. You don't even have to cut the fruit - simply start an awareness campaign. You can blog about it, tweet it, link it, find me on Claycord, Facebook, or Google. Please...just share some good news today! Our children need you. Citrus fruit is ripe - right now all over the Bay Area.

Email The Lemon Lady: AnnaAndAva@gmail.com. I'll send a flyer to get you going.
