It seems like there are so many companies out there who get it completely wrong. That’s not the case with Surf City Growers. They completely get it and they teach others how it’s done.

Linda McNair is the president of Surf City Growers, a small organic nursery located in Aptos, California. She co-founded the company with her husband, Trent, in 2005 and together they launched My First Organics seed starting kits in 2009.  Their goals are to help families and schools eat healthier, support local organic farming and do their part in saving the planet.

I bought a My First Organic Classroom Bundle for my daughter’s kindergarten class last year and a Homeschool Bundle for us to use at home. They are fabulous tools to teach kids early about the origins of healthy food and why it’s so good for them and the Earth.

Everything in My First Organics seed starting kits is Earth-safe. Each kit is made up of a reusable or recyclable mini-greenhouse complete with organic seeds, soil and biodegradable pots that can be placed directly into the soil. Step-by-step, kid-friendly guidance and illustrations are also included, making each step simple.

Here’s the good news, they’ve opened up a shop on Amazon and are offering a 15% discount on orders of $15 or more until October 31st, 2010! So, what are you waiting for? Do you need a unique, fun, educational, healthy gift for an upcoming birthday? Do you want to do some early holiday shopping for a child, homeschooler or K-3 teacher? Use Claim Code – AMAZON23 – during checkout!

Instead of putting Caleigh back in a traditional school environment, we made the decision to homeschool her this school year. First Grade commenced at the Gabriel household on Monday.
