Fund a Future Gardener!

The lovely ladies over at Garden Rant have organized a Garden Bloggers Challenge to raise money for young gardeners and fund garden programs in schools around the country.

Best to let them explain:

"We've chosen an ambitious $10,000 worth of projects to fund. Most projects are proposed by young, ambitious teachers, many of them part of the Teach for America programs. The schools are almost all high-poverty schools. Some don't have any safe outdoor space for a garden, so the teachers request indoor grow equipment. There are worm composting projects, butterfly projects, and many projects for kids with special needs."
