Here is a message of Holly HIRSHBERG :

“I run a non-profit called The Dinner Garden <> .

The mission of The Dinner Garden is to provide seeds to all people free of charge so that people can have greater food security. We encourage people to garden for their families and communities. I was recently referred to your blog and was really impressed. Most of our gardeners are very poor and can not afford commercial gardening supplies. We are working on compiling resources for people so that they will be able to garden using supplies they already have.

We would love to have a link to your website on <>  as it seems we share a common vision of a world without hunger.

Thank you for considering!

Holly Hirshberg
Executive Director
The Dinner Garden


Here is the introductory text on Holly’s website :

The Dinner Garden provides seeds, gardening supplies, and gardening advice free of charge to all people in the United States of America. We assist those in need in establishing food security for their families. Our goal is for people to plant home, neighborhood, and container gardens so they can use the vegetables they grow for food and income.

Please read the very interesting welcoming text !
