2BSeeds to Offer Free Tomato Seeds, a Family Tradition of Easing Hard Times
Date:3/10/2010

A Colorado man is giving away free tomato seeds. Why? Because Dan Busch’s great grandparents once handed out free tomatoes during the Great Depression as a way to provide unemployed families with a way to supplement their own food. Now, as owner of 2BSeeds, Busch is looking to do something similar for this century’s Great Recession, this time with vegetable seeds.

Broomfield, CO (PRWEB) March 10, 2010 -- Free tomato seeds. They are one man’s way to make a difference.

It may be a different time, but Dan Busch of 2BSeeds in Broomfield, Colorado, will never forget the stories of the Great Depression in the 1930s that were passed on to him by his great grandparents. His great grandfather was a tomato grower during the Depression and he decided to give away free tomatoes at the farmers market to all whom were unemployed and in need of finding a way to feed their families.

Now 2BSeeds is looking to give back and follow their family’s tradition in a very big way by offering a free package of heirloom red tomato seeds to all who are unemployed or in need of supplementing their food budget.

Vegetable gardens are on the rise and there will be 40% more of them this year than there were just two years ago, states the National Gardening Association, a non-profit gardening education organization. Bruce Butterfield, the group’s research director, says, “As the economy goes down, food gardening goes up.”

Tomatoes are easy to grow and one plant can provide 10-20 lbs of harvest for most families. The quality of fruit picked in the garden when fully ripe far surpasses anything available in the market, even in season. Tomatoes are excellent for canning, freezing, and drying.

Nutritionists have always known tomatoes were good for you, now there is research-based information as to why. Tomatoes are high in vitamin C, potassium, fiber and vitamin A in the form of health promoting beta-carotene, which the body converts to vitamin A. With other vegetable seeds, gardens can be planted to provide an effective, cheap way to produce needed food.

Dan and his wife Linda own and operate 2BSeeds, an Internet business that ships quality vegetable seeds, flower seeds and herb seeds throughout the United States. Dan and Linda are not new to gardening, as they owned and operated a greenhouse in Colorado from 1980 to 2004. Supporting charities and international children's food programs has always been a custom for their family and their company.

2BSeeds.com offers information for the novice growing his first tomatoes as well as the ambitious gardener who wants to plant a full vegetable garden to feed a whole family. Guidance is provided for all U.S. growing zones. Dan and Linda's hope is that more families will discover the pleasure of growing their own garden using vegetable seeds. Valued at $2.50, free tomato seeds are just a click away. Submit to the shopping cart, and fill out the shipping information to receive the tomato seeds with 2BSeed’s secure Web site.

A nominal shipping and handling fee is required to receive the free tomato seeds, and this offer remains valid only while supplies last. So be sure to contact 2BSeeds right away at www.2bseeds.com or call 1-800-833-5988 to receive your batch of free vegetable seeds.
