I recently stumbled across a great site,  Their purpose is to stop hunger by promoting gardening and they will send you free seeds to get you started.  Just a few days ago I sent my email to them and they sent me some free seeds.  I got mariana tomatoes, basil, grano onions, fenugreek, kale, spinach and mustard greens hybrid, mustard greens, hybrid red head cabbage, rocket herb, broccoli and dill.  They sent them to me without cost, not even shipping charges.

Along with the seeds came business cards from and is place to donate your excess produce.  Their website says:  "The campaign diminishes hunger in America by helping backyard gardeners share their excess garden produce with neighborhood food pantries."  If you garden and you have extra, please look for pantries in your area that accept produce.

The other website, says that "Individuals empowering themselves and each other to grow small food gardens worldwide."  It has planting times, how to's, garden books and much more.
