Seed Catalogs FREE. 2014. 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 daughter 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!

Apple Season. Donate Apples From Your Tree. Share Fruit. Join "the lemon lady" mission . . .

My daughter joyfully harvesting apples for the hungry.

Food Pantries and Hunger Relief organizations struggle to meet the demands of the poor economy. Sometimes the person struggling is the FAMILY NEXT DOOR. Together, we can SHARE THE LOVE. SHARE FRUIT. Locally grown fruits and vegetables are an abundant harvest, yet a real luxury for most on a limited food budget. Perhaps you know a family struggling with unemployment or a health crisis. Let's boost nutrition to our neediest neighbors! Please, I ask that you take action today. Join me. Find a tree. Share Fruit.

In Concord, California, donating fruit from Summer 2014 harvests is easy! Apples, peaches, plums, oranges, lemons, the summer fruit is endless.

Do you have a fruit tree? Do you wish to donate fruit?

Register your fruit tree before it is too late!

"The Lemon Lady Foundation" and Volunteers offer FREE Pick-up and Delivery service to hunger relief organizations in Contra Costa County, California: Concord, Danville, Pleasant Hill, Walnut Creek, Alamo, Martinez, Pacheco and other cities by arrangement.



For NATIONWIDE donation locations, Visit Feeding America.

The Lemon Lady Foundation's mission connects Gardeners and Tree Owners across America to food pantries and county food banks. Any Town, Every Town, USA. Where to deliver fresh garden produce:
Feeding America
Donate excess garden produce, tree-ripened homegrown fruit to any of thousands of food banks, food pantries, Salvation Army, Churches, Homeless Shelters, Soup Kitchens Nationwide. From California to the Carolinas, New York to Florida and every state in between.
