One Million Gardens project

How many vegetable gardens are there in the U.S.? The One Million Gardens campaign is trying to find out! Their goal is to register one million vegetable gardens -- home gardens, community gardens, even container gardens on apartment balconies -- by the end of 2009. Check it out, register if you like, and find other gardeners on the site.

Hi Karen - this link you posted is different than the one million gardens project that is giving away free heirloom seed packets to encourage people to plant 1,000,000 gardens with natural seeds. I like what they sent, and the squash has already sprouted.

Anyway, I am not sure what your link is but it seems like a totally different thing. I think you are thinking of

I like your blog - must be getting nice for gardening up in salem, yeah! Sweet!

The One Million Gardens project they are referring to was started by me in the middle of February as a registry to document the creation of 1,000,000 US food gardens by the end of 2009.

The project you are referring to just started a social networking site on March 26th by dropping the "S" in One Million Gardens for their website. Their stated goal is to get 1,000,000 gardens worldwide by 2012. Personally I thing we can and need to move much more quickly to help Americans prepare for the coming economic re-structuring.

It is very confusing

Geez, one wonders how many "million gardens" projects we would need. A million is a lot; you'd think just one would be enough!

Thanks for your help - it is the right one. It's the one at with an "S" and it's so great. Thank you for starting this.
