Follow this link to see Project 2011. Although it has ended there are many wonderful blog posts to read by thoughtful earth-friendly bloggers!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ 
Information about the project:
This is NOT a 'contest'. There is NO competition. It is an event to SHARE. No posts or comments will be 'judged'. Prize winners will be selected entirely randomly. Your comments and/or blog posts will be counted only ONCE. You do NOT need to be 'green' to join in--just interested and aware of our environment and willing to look at what you can do to contribute positively and eliminate or reduce unnecessary actions.

The Gardeners' Sustainable Living Project was created to share ways that gardeners are actively practicing a greener lifestyle and contributing to protecting our environment. If you are a gardener, garden blogger, garden writer, garden media, garden merchandiser--you can join in and share what you do to help, rather than hinder, nature. Just because we are gardeners doesn't mean we're operating 'sustainably'. Let's find ways to garden by taking into account our impact on the environment and whether that has a positive effect on our health and that of Mother Earth.


In Mid March I published a post on my blog, Thanks For Today, where I have asked you to attach a link to your blog post--or, if you prefer, just leave a comment--sharing what you are doing, or plan to change, about the way you live and garden. My post will be open from March 15 through April 15th. Maybe you would like to share one thing or a dozen things. It doesn't matter how long or short your blog post or comment is. Just say something!

Part of the fun of this project is that you will be entered in to a drawing for garden-related gifts and prizes. There will be a couple of larger gifts, the grand prizes--and a variety of smaller ones. Those who write blog posts are eligible for all of them. The grand prizes might be a rain barrel (like last year)--or maybe a composter--or a mulching mower; who knows?! This is not final yet, however. All of the other items and gifts will be things like tools, gloves, books, etc., which both commenters and bloggers wiill be eligible for. Each person will be eligible for one prize only. There (may) be some restrictions with regard to country eligibiliity, which might limit (some) prizes to only those in the US & Canada, BUT last year many gardeners participated with the knowledge they would not receive a prize.

See the 2011 List of Garden -Related Products and Prizes.

Thanks for joining in and I hope you will have fun sharing with and learning from gardeners around the world! OH, and Please DO SHARE and invite your friends to come over and join in the fun! The project lasts for an entire month, from March 15th to April 15th, so all contributions entered during that time will be included.

In the meantime please visit last years project to get a feel for what this is about. The change I've made this year is to include ALL gardeners, not just garden bloggers.

Originally posted to this blog on April 1, 2010arth Day Celebration: Rain Barrel GIVEAWAY!!!

In recognition of Earth Day, which is April 22, 2010, the Garden Bloggers Sustainable Living project was created to share ways that garden bloggers are actively practicing a greener lifestyle and contributing to protecting our environment. In that same spirit, I'm having a Give Away!

*The Grand Prize:

Author, syndicated columnist, media host of Growing A Greener World, Joe Lampl has arranged for a Fiskars Rain Barrel donation, which will serve as the Grand Prize for the Garden Bloggers Sustainability project that I am hosting. Click Here to watch Joe demonstrate how to install a Fiskars Rain Barrel.

Additional Give Away items include:

West County Gardener has kindly donated 3 pairs of their gloves for this give away--including their Work glove and Rose glove.

"The snug yet comfortable fit, the stylish design and attractive colors really make wearing these tough duty garden gloves something to look forward to. And with the new eco-friendly design, each pair keeps one 8 oz. plastic bottle from the landfill." $20 West County Gardener

The generous folks at CobraHead are donating TWO of their earth friendly handtools, the CobraHead weeders:

"The CobraHead is the king of the hill as far as we’re concerned when it comes to the best tool for getting out those deep tap-rooted weeds. This tool feels great in your hand, is fun to use and is even designed for precision weeding around tender plants." $24.95 short handle  $59.95 long handle

Garden Shoes Online (many of you know Teresa from her garden blog,Gardening With Soule), is donating a jar of GreenCure with a spray bottle:

"GreenCure fungicide, for control of powdery mildew, black spot and otherplant diseases". $20.95 at Garden Shoes Online.

Suzy, from Hip Mountain Mama, is donating a reusable stainless steel water bottle, that appropriately spells out Love the Earth:

"Go green with these earth friendly reuseable water bottles! Help reduce unneccessary environmental waste caused by plastic water bottles and look cool doing it". $16 at Hip Mountain Mama.

Lastly, I am giving away a new, reusable and earth-friendly tote/grocery bag with my Maine wildflower photograph and the words 'Earth day is every day'.

 *See details.

1. Create a *new post, on your active garden blog, sharing what you are doing in your yard/garden and/or plan to start doing, to contribute to a sustainable lifestyle.  *If you have written a previous post about Earth Day or 'being green', and you think it's relevant, you can use it, but please re-post it with the current date and name of this project, proper links, etc.
2. In your your post, refer to this project and include the badge either in your post or your sidebar. Add a reciprocal link back toThis Page.
3. Mention in your post that Earth Day is on April 22, 2010. The EPA website has a section to give you some information:  Earthday 

4. Come back and attach the link to YOUR post in a comment, either on this post, or the original post announcing the project, NLT April 15, 2010, by 11:59 pm.  I will then add it to the list of participants posts. *(When you come back to leave your link please also tell me your glove size in case you get chosen to receive a pair. I was given two women's medium and one men's large).

Determining winners:
I will read all posts to be sure the steps outlined were followed, and that something of some substance has been written. It need not be a Pulitzer-winning-essay and is not a 'competition'. A paragraph is fine (more if you wish) or at least a list of things you do, or plan to do--and please, not just a few sentences about why you want the rain barrel.  All qualifying entries will be placed in a drawing. The names will be drawn at random and winners will be announced in a separate post on or before April 20, 2010.

NOTE: Gifts can be sent to Canada and the US, only. However, many bloggers from other countries have submitted posts!

I came up with this idea while visiting Dee, at Red Dirt Ramblings as I read through comments left to her describing some of the ways many of you bloggers are actively practicing a greener lifestyle, and I was inspired!  If you haven't visited her recently SHE is having a CONTEST for a 'Fiskars Momentum reel mower' to get us thinking more about (and practicing) greener living! *Her Contest Has Ended.

I made a commitment to make some personal contributions to this lifestyle myself this year, and I am going to write about them in some upcoming posts.  I can't wait to read your posts and share our ideas announcing to the blogging world that Earth Day is not just ONE day but EVERY day! Let's share how we all contribute to giving Thanks to Mother Earth!

*View the participants posts HERE and check back as they are continually being added.

Fiskars Rain Barrel Give Away! Yes, it's true!!

How would you like to win a FREE Fiskars Rain Barrel to celebrate Earth Day, which is April 22, 2010?

*(Actual model being given away is not known. Above photos shows one of the models Fiskars carries) 

It's easy: Write a post on what you are doing in your yard to contribute to a greener environment. NOTE: You don't need to be a tree hugger or an environmentalist for this! Just a garden blogger! *You do need to have an active garden blog. Your post need not be a Pulitzer-prize-eligible piece of work. NO, just a paragraph or two (or, more if you wish!) about things you are already doing, or even are planning to do, to help our earth stay clean.

Author, national television show host, and syndicated columnist Joe Lampl, of Growing A Greener World (a.k.a joe gardener®) has arranged for a Fiskars Rain Barrel donation, which will serve as the Grand Prize for the Garden Bloggers Sustainability project that I am hosting. Click Here to watch Joe demonstrate how to install a Fiskars Rain Barrel.

*Three pairs of garden gloves by West County Gardener
*Two hand tools (weeders) by CobraHead
*A jar of GreenCure Fungicide with spray bottle by GardenShoesOnline
*Earth-friendly (stainless steel) water bottle by Hip Mountain Momma

What do you need to do?
1. Create a *new post, on your active garden blog, sharing what you are doing in your yard/garden and/or plan to start doing, to help our world stay 'green'. *If you have written a previous post about Earth Day or 'being green', and you think it's relevant, you can use it, but please re-post it with the current date and name of this project.
2. Include, in your post, a reciprocal link back to This Page and include the badge in your post or your sidebar.

3. Mention in your post that Earth Day is on April 22, 2010. The EPA website has a section to give you some information.
4. Come back and attach the link to YOUR post in a comment, either on this post, or the original post announcing the project, NLT April 15, 2010, by 11:59 pm.  I will then add it to the list of participants posts.*(When you come back to leave your link please also tell me your glove size in case you get chosen to receive a pair. I was given two women's medium and one men's large).

How will the Grand Prize winner be determined? 
I will read all posts to be sure directions were followed, and that something of some substance has been written. It need not be a Pulitzer-winning-essay but should show a little effort and not be just a few sentences about why you want the rain barrel.  All qualifying entries will be placed in a drawing. The names will be drawn at random and winners will be announced in a separate post on or before April 20, 2010.

*NOTE: Prize eligibility is to US and Canada residents only. However, I would love bloggers from other countries to join in just because you want to spread the word! Many of the current posts that I've received are from outside the US and Canada.

Have fun with this! Read through some of the others already posted, but don't feel you have to compete. This isn't a contest, so I'm not choosing 'the best essay'. No, it's to get you (and others) thinking about what you (or they) already do or want to add to your lifestyle to make it more sustainable. And, it's to announce the approach of Earth Day so our readers will be aware.

Wondering what's in this for me? Nothing gifts or prizes. But I feel excited to be able to honor our earth by helping to bring attention to sustainability issues, and of course, meeting more garden bloggers is a huge benefit;-)
