Holly Hirshberg’s passion for gardening has blossomed into a non-profit organization aimed at feeding the world. Holly expanded her family garden as the economy began to decline, so she would have extra produce to donate to her local food pantry. She realized very quickly that it would be more help, greater security and a sense of accomplishment to struggling families if they could rely on their own gardens, rather than the food pantries and she formulated a plan to get them started. The Dinner Garden is her excellent idea to do exactly that.
The Dinner Garden provides garden seeds, free of charge, to anyone in the United States. They don’t stop with just the seeds, though. The Dinner Garden blog is a great resource with project opportunities that allow you to contribute to Seeds for Kids, Feed a Family or the Dinner Garden. You can also find delicious recipes along with ideas for gardening with kids, growing ginger and pineapple from your store-bought produce and subscribe to their newsletter containing gardening tips, Dinner Garden news, recipes, and photos.
I encourage you to visit The Dinner Garden, get your free seeds and make a huge boost in your personal economy by growing your own garden and contributing to the economies of others if you can.
