Tired of tasteless produce that is shipped thousands of miles just to reach your local grocer?
Are your meals just not cutting it with dried herbs and spices that have sat on shelves for an indeterminate amount of time?
Have you wanted a variety of food not available at your local store?
Do you find yourself throwing out spoiled produce that you just didn’t have time to prepare?
Wish that you didn’t have to waste time, effort, and resources caring for a lawn you never even use?
These are many of the very reasons that inspired me to start a transition within my life years ago.
Welcome to the Growing Dinner Transition Challenge 2012! Inspired by the TransitionUS Transition Town Movement of 2012, Growing Dinner Gardenscapes will sponsor a local outreach for the Napa Valley Area of Northern California. As part of the Growing Dinner Transition we are encouraging everyone to make small changes to help ease our dependence on energy and non-local foods. By each making small changes we can make a large impact!
To help teach and encourage people we are offering our Growing Dinner Garden Consults free for the month of May! These 90 minute in-depth consultations are geared to teach, inspire, and help people create their own edible gardens. Partnered with Annie Haven of Authentic Haven Brand Manure Tea, we will show how we can grow spectacular sustainable gardens organically. We offer knowledge and experience on creating a sustainable ecosystem within the soil. We will show you how that by feeding our soil we are feeding our plants.
To help spread the word we will be holding a giveaway contest. A variety 3 pack of Authentic Haven Brand Manure Tea will be randomly chosen to the entries within the month of May. I have firsthand experience with the wonders of this Manure Tea, and I hope to encourage its use in encouraging a vibrant healthy soil.
The restrictions for the Giveaway Contest are simply that contestants must reside within the continental United States. For our free Garden Consultations applicants must reside within 30 minutes of Napa, CA.
To receive a Free Garden Consultation LIKE our Facebook page, and either post on our wall or email us on how you would like to Transition 2012. Consultations are limited in space and will be run by first-come/first-serve.
For the free 3 pack of Haven Authentic Brand Manure Tea we will be accepting entries all during the month of May. You can enter once a day by doing one of the following:
