Tomatoes & Spinach & Carrots, Oh My!

One of the ways that my Mom fueled our gardening interest was to let us choose a unique type of seed each year. We chose and grew unusual vegetables, cotton, gourds, and even flowers.
 

We hope to use this lesson from my Mom and introduce unusual seed during the Grow And Share children’s educational classes at the greenhouse…. and when we present at schools or scout troop meetings.

These are seeds we request from donors:.

  • white, yelow, or purple carrot seed
  • black watermelon seed
  • black, yellow, pink, purple, or green tomato seed
  • purple or regular spinach (need LOTS of this fast-growing seed)
  • red, purple, and regular lettuce

Will you help? If so, please purchase the seeds and ship them to Grow And Share, 70 Harrison Street, Zebulon NC 27597.  We suggest heirloom seeds but accept hybrids and regular seeds.  We do not accept GMO seed.

Looking for end of year tax deduction?  We are a 501(c)(3) organization.  Donate seeds (or funds) to Grow And Share before the end of 2010!  We’ll get you your nonprofit donation receipt right away.   Be sure to ship seeds by mid-December to ensure they arrive in time.

 
 

Wanted: Seeds for veggies, melons, beans, etc. for Non-profit

Non-profit GROW AND SHARE is seeking seed. If you have any packets you won't be using, or even parts of leftover packets, we would love to have them. Please visit http://www.growandshare.org for address/phone to donate by mailing them or to arrange pickup for larger amounts of seed.

We focus on shared and community gardening to fight hunger. Donate your un-needed seed, we will grow your seeds into plants, and in April we will give the plants away to gardeners in many neighborhoods. The food grown on those plants will be shared with neighbors, strangers in need, and food banks.

Help us get lots of healthy garden produce into the hands of the needy, and to help US residents eat healthier from local gardens!

We ESPECIALLY need tomato seeds and greens seeds. All vegetable/fruit/legume seeds are welcome. No flowers, please, unless they are edibles. :-)

Thank you in advance for your donation!
