Give the Gift of Sustainability!
Is there anyone on your shopping list who wants to learn more about gardening, chickens, goats, or canning? Are you looking for small (but meaningful) gifts for teachers and extended family? Do you know someone who is hoping for an amazing heirloom garden this spring?
By shopping with Heirloom Gardens you are supporting a local, sustainable business AND giving your friends and family the gift of sustainability in their lives. You can choose the gift that fits your budget and your vision for giving. If you want to give our handmade, all-natural goat milk soap, you can choose from individual bars (just $6 each!), get a large or small Holiday Gift Box, or sign someone up for the Soap of the Month club. If you want to give the gift of education, you can purchase a copy of “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Urban Homesteading” or give a gift certificate for any of the Heirloom Gardens urban homesteading classes (gardening, chickens, goats, canning, or soapmaking). If you want to help someone grow their garden, you can give a gift certificate — in any amount — to be used for organic, heirloom seedlings in the spring.
Plus, for every $50 you spend with Heirloom Gardens between now and December 23rd, you will receive an additional $10 gift certificate for your own use. Happy Holidays, and thank you for supporting Heirloom Gardens!
