I was struck with a wonderful thought this morning. I was thinking about going out and clearing some more debris out of my garden area, so I can put seeds in it to grow. I was thinking this will benefit me and maybe some family members, it's not a large area.
There are people in need all over, who may be living in the woods, or under a bridge or with other people who may have a yard. These people usually walk around during the day, looking for aluminum cans and other things to help out during hard times.
Zip Lock bags with seeds for different kinds of food in them, can help so many people, take care themselves a little better. Maybe add little garden tools or an old fork and spoon, they could dig little holes with. Even a kind note encouraging them to plant the seeds (don't give your personal location or phone number, in these notes) unless you are a very trusting person, and really want them to know who it came from. Even a printed out page about safe food from foliage that may be around them, would help. Even the 800 number for job & family service in the area, or a soup kitchen address or food pantry address might help. Some people have never been in this destitute way, before.
People usually know where these people go, or recognize who they are, pass them a bag/leave near by. parks,woods wherever you can think of
Thank You if this is something you can do and will do.
