Lots of stuff on the Homesweet Homegrown Front
It's been a whirlwind lately, and we've been wanting to catch up with you all----hope everyone is having a great start to summer! Here's the latest:
Rewards are out!
It was quite a feat, but thanks to the amazing Ellen (pictured below) all of the seed packets and rewards were created, assembled, and ready to ship in time for Mother's Day (whew!) and she made off with some nice dough to put towards her first car (which you all helped towards too! Kickstarter trickle down theory;)
Homesweet Homegrown site is UP
We also created a new site for the tour----check it out at www.homesweet-homegrown.com. We've included a geocaching map, so when we blog and post photos, you can see where we are at.
Tour Dates/Locations Announced!
We are stopping at some great urban farms, city homesteading stores, indie shops, and farm to table restaurants. Here's the latest lineup---I hope you can come join us!

More Coverage of the Tour
The folks at Organic Gardening Magazine have asked us to blog about the tour for their site, too, so we will be reaching even more people! We will also be shooting videos and interviewing people from the local food scene at each city, so it'll be like you're right there with us;)
OK, enough about us---how are your seeds doing? We'd love to see pics of what you are growing with your HSHG packets and book! Email pics to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll post 'em!
Robyn and Jenn
ps----thank you all again----look at the insanity you helped make happen! We are so thrilled to be amtraking it across the country to spread the word about diy/homegrown/organic food. Hope to toast some beet sangria with you at one of our summer book signing events!
