Giving

In the landscape world, we gardeners and designers seem to be a sort of professional giver...that is, giving our creativity, our passion, our energy, and our knowledge. Of course we are reimbursed for these gifts on a monetary level, but sometimes, when the designer-client relationship is a happy one, we are reimbursed with gratefulness and joy. And this is so much more about why I love what I do.

Well, I'm excited to report that I have a side project designed specifically with giving in mind...it's still in the works, but it's one that will help me--with your generosity--to donate more to my company's annual charitable contribution. With the help of a friend, I am excited to be offering Dirt organic soy candles in their Nitty Gritty Scent..."This herbal organic delight contains organic soil, ripe tomatoes, fresh Mediterranean sage and a hint of Malabar grass and celery seed, creating a unique combination down to the the nitty gritty dirt." Appropo, don't you think? I'll be selling each one for $35 with all proceeds going towards bolstering the monetary donation to the charity I choose. For those unaware, the last 3 years or so have seen my company supporting various local, grass roots, charitable organizations whose focus lies in land or natural resource preservation. Some of the recepients in the past have been Garfield Farm and Chicagoland Wilderness. This year's candidate is likely to be the Land Conservancy of Lake County.

If you're interested in getting involved with my big idea and you'd like to order a candle (the holidays are coming!!!), please send me an email and let me know how many you'd like. Shipping and postage is included in the price, and orders will go out at the beginning of December. It's an easy and effective way to get more involved! Thanks!
