Seeds for Life Objectives:
Provide seed to the needy; Share knowledge of how to plant, cultivate, and harvest seeds; Teach methods to improve soils using good environmental and conservation principles; Foster the "Seeds for Life" Texas Garden Club Inc. World Gardening program.
Sending seeds internationally was limited by the import restrictions of many countries. Thanks again to TGC who in 2008 approved our use of the seeds in our local communities with approved programs. In the Dist IV area we are donating seeds to Urban Harvest, www.urbanharvest.org. Seeds are furnished for school and communtiy garden programs. The main donation was to HISD schools for youth gardening.
