Mel’s Message for Christmas

The Christmas Season is here, the time for Giving -- giving of gifts and giving of ourselves.

First let me tell you what a gift you have given me by being a supporter, follower, and user of the SFG system. It makes my life so complete. When a person creates something new and different, the real joy and pleasure is seeing it being used by others and bringing pleasure to them. Of course SFG is more than pleasure. For many it is life. It is subsistence. It is hope for the future because it’s all based upon a seed sprouting. That seed can be many different things.

It’s been a long time since I invented Square Foot Gardening. In 1974 (How many of you were even born then?) then SFG was presented to the public at the Bicentennial Celebration of 1976 in Setauket, NY. Then came the first book in 1981 along with the PBS TV series from 1981-1986.

Gosh how long ago was that! Now it all feels like almost a grandchild that has grown up and is successful on its own and even starting its own family, growing even more, so fast and hard to keep track of. SFG supporters have made an impact by spreading this unique gardening system all over the world.

And guess what? IT WORKS ALL OVER THE WORLD. We have SFG projects in India, Africa, Haiti all over South and Central America and throughout the Pacific Rim countries. We will soon have a special UK edition of the Square Meter Gardening book. It will be published in many different languages throughout Europe.

My Christmas present to you is a heartfelt “Thank you” for making all of this possible. Use this SFG gift for your family and all of the people you can show it to. Help us take this special Holiday present to others. Start in your family with kids, grandparents, siblings, their families and then friends and neighbors. Give them SFG books or DVDs. Show them around the SFG websites. Share your experiences. Help them lay-out and get started with their own SFG next spring.

Get active in the SFG Foundation. Become a Certified SFG Instructor. Start a school, church, or community garden. That will be your present to the world, and in turn that will make me so grateful for this wonderful season. Use the method and do something good for the world with it. The world will be grateful to you. I promise, I know.

Mel

I met him a couple of times.  I loved his off-beat sense of humor.

I never saw his show, so I don't know what he was like, but I just did a search and found plenty of videos. I think that will be my entertainment for the evening. It will be nice to put a face and a voice to the written words. I love you
