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!

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.
