Tumblr Community Garden Give-away #2!
Once again, I’m creating a community garden one Tumblr user at a time!
The prize:
12+/- different types of seeds for growing herbs and veggies:
Cucumber (2 kinds)
English Thyme
Lettuce
Carrots
Beets
Rio Zape Beans(like a pinto bean, aka Hopi Bean)
Midnight Black Bean
Yellow Indian Woman Bean
Banana  Pepper
and more - many are heirloom seed that can be regrown from the new fruit
15 bio-degradable Jiffy Pots
5 up-cycled planter pots
2 Ice cream pails for bigger plants
Homemade, hand-bound book for garden journal
3 Mother Earth News’ Magazines with great articles on self-sufficiency
Coconut coir from our coconuts to place in bottom of pots for better drainage
Craft sticks to label your seedlings
Gently read zines and books on self-sufficiency, living a better life and urban gardening from Adam gnade, jessie-duke and the independent publisher/distributor Pioneers Press
AND…a $10 gift card to the hardware/garden center of your choice to buy gobs of dirt (last giveaway I shipped dirt. Never again).
Rules- -Following tropicalhomestead appreciated but not necessary-reblog this post at least once AND include a note why you want to win. Very Important, you won’t be considered without a reason.-no giveaway blogs-likes don’t count -reblog so everyone can have a chance to start growing their own food
-I also hope the winner will keep us updated on mini-garden progress!
Give-away open to November 1, 2014. I’ll pick a winner by November 10.
Good luck - and don’t worry if you’re not a winner this time - I live for this stuff and I will do it again.

Oh my gosh, this would be so wonderful to win for a senior living community I’m close with. They have and participate in a communal garden, and I definitely know that they’d take full advantage of everything here. All of the seniors there are on an extremely fixed income and often times have to live off of free food donations from various churches and don’t always have access to fresh veggies unless they’re growing them themselves in their garden. I wouldn’t mind keeping a handful of the bean seeds, but I know this is something they could use and benefit greatly from since the seniors there I know personally love to garden and know how to can/pickle.
