Lets "Grow Together" with One Seed Chicago

Get 2010 off to a great start by growing together with One Seed Chicago. One Seed Chicago is a project of NeighborSpace, Chicago's land trust for community gardens. Every year One Seed Chicago puts three seeds up for a vote, Chicagoans vote for their favorite and the winning seed is sent to them for free in the mail.

You can grow your One Seed Chicago seeds in your garden, windowsill, container garden or community garden. You don't have to be an experienced gardener to participate, just have a desire to beautify Chicago by planting more gardens. Teachers can request a classroom size packet of seeds to get kids involved.

Voting takes place from January 1, 2010 until April 1, 2010 and the winning seed will be announced at the Green & Growing Urban Garden Fair at the Garfield Park Conservatory on April 24, 2010.

To vote simply fill out the form at www.OneSeedChicago.com and follow the blog for events, news and information on growing your seeds.

If you have a blog or a website you can download graphics here for a post here encouraging your readers to vote and get free seeds. You'll also find smaller graphics for making badges that you can use to link to One Seed Chicago.

    Don't mention it. Thanks for blogging about it I'm sure it is going to help get the word out about the project.
