You might think this is crazy to think about now, but it won’t be long before the days start getting longerthe Winter Solstice is December 21st. Though there’s still a lot of winter weather ahead, the anticipation of longer days comfortand remind meit won't be long before the seed catalogs will be arriving in the mail and the sap will be flowing!

In anticipation of the next growing season, I want to share a great seed resource for non-profits. Funds are always an issue for most, if not all, of my clients. 
Every little savings makes a difference, so I was excited when I came across a generous offer from The Chas. C Hart Seed Company of Wethersfield, CT. at a landscape industry trade show. Established in 1892, this family owned company is currently run by the fifth generation of Harts. From the very beginning, the Hart family has been involved in supporting the community. And for generations, unsold packets of seed have been sent to those in need at the end of the season. Continuing in this tradition, Nicole and Melissa Hart started an in-house department called, “Families Helping Families” Seed Donation. 

They’ll provide free packets of seed for your community garden, school project, church mission or other charitable organization. The only cost to you is shipping.
Based on availability, they’re willing to fill specific requests for seed varieties.  

Get your orders in early!
