PBS Television Show "Growing A Greener World" features Shawna Coronado's sustainable front lawn Victory Garden. Host Joe Lamp'l speaks with Shawna about growing organic vegetables and making a difference in her community.

One Person Can Make A Difference: 

How she changed her community with her Organic front yard garden!

It's easy - Just START! 
There is no reason you can't have your own food, grown the way you want, organically- Saving you money, saving your health, and even your community and the next generation! 

Join the Revolution - TODAY - no excuses.

I started my first backyard garden last year, in a small space - with little knowledge, a will to save money on fresh organics and feed myself and my daughter a wholesome plant based diet - and it's still flourishing today with little maintenance.

Here are some photos of when we started our 1st garden last year, and the fruits of our labor by mid-Summer/late Fall 2012.

These seeds are cheap! 
Cost should not be an excuse.

This is the garden in a small plot in the backyard in a 
Mobil Home Park with minimal cheap materials

Lack of space is NOT an excuse!

A Lemon Tree ($22)
A Mandarin Orange Tree (right)

Cherry Tomatoes fresh from the garden - 
how much do you think that amount of organic cherry tomatoes would cost at the store?

Fresh HUGE Beets - great for juicing and cooking!

Sweet Watermelon (personal sized)

More Cherry Tomatoes - Baby Carrots - Broccoli

*I couldn't believe how much Organic Broccoli florets cost at the store, 
so I made sure to try growing some in the 
garden to save money - and it was super easy! 

Just remember to water daily and grow in lots of sunshine (if possible) and let the happy bee's pollinate the buds!!
Nature does the rest :)

(Great for juicing and fresh salads or soups) 

These beauties are still growing strong today, 
and I haven't been watering as frequently, they still look very green and perky :)

What are you waiting for??
Gardening season is upon us
