Heirloom Free Seeds and a Contest

Post  barmstr on 2/15/2012, 6:29 pm

Grow Heirlooms. Grow Diversity. Grow Community.

Join the contest that keeps on giving! This year, gardeners from across the US and Canada are coming together to grow over 1,400 heirloom plant varieties and participate in a growing movement to preserve the legacy and diversity of these time-honored plants.

Share your heirloom adventures on YourGardenShow.com and qualify for a chance to win some great prizes. Our grand prize winner will receive accommodations and air travel to attend The National Heirloom Expo this September in California.

To get things started, we're giving away free heirloom seeds to the first 1,000 contest entrants! To be the first to receive full contest details, including how to get free seeds, just submit your email address. Sign-up today, tell your friends and Grow It Forward!

The contest begins next month. One of the sponsors is Baker Creek Heirloom Seed (rareseeds.com). I tried to put in the link below the correct way but it didn't work so you will have to copy the link and paste into a new page.

http://www.yourgardenshow.com/grow-it-forward

Enjoy the plantings.
Bruce

News - finally, we have rain in So. Cal. cheers

Ok, I tried looking elsewhere and even links from google regarding that site are giving me the gateway error. Im guessing the site is down maybe?

Bad Gateway Error

Post  littlejo on 2/16/2012, 9:05 am

I followed the link yesterday and all was fine. This am a bad gateway error.

Either the site itself is being overloaded or somewhere on the way to the site, there is a piece of equipment that is failing. This may be at the site if no one can get to the site.

When you sign up, you get a message after to say that they will not be able to send free seeds out of the US because of customs reasons... So why do they say it's open to US and Canada? ....
That is so wrong..

Do you get a confirmation email after signing up? I pinned this, too and got more likes & repins than for anything else I've ever pinned!

I signed up, but they did not send me an email. Am I supposed to get one?

If it's open to all, then they should work out the internationl mailing of seed before they make the offer.
