WINNER!!! Giveaway: “On a Farm Above the Sea, The Experiment”

And the winner of the “On a Farm Above the Sea, The Experiment” giveaway is: Mona Tucker, who said: “My farmgirl hero is my friend Shelley. She is a single mom of three teenagers, working an 8-5 day job, and gardening in her off-time. She loves to put together pretty little baskets of her fresh produce—tomatoes, peppers, squash, whatever is ripe at the time—and top if off with a flower and maybe a jar of jelly, and present it to friends on their birthdays. She has taught her children to respect the Earth and each other. She has supported and encouraged them as they raised chickens and goats for school projects, and they have willingly worked long hours in the hot Texas sun to help her in her garden. Shelley is the one who introduced me to MaryJanesFarm magazine.”

And the original post for the GIVEAWAY was (thank you!!!! to the 66 who left such inspirational comments about a woman farmer in their lives who inspires them): In the Aug/Sept issue of MaryJanesFarm, “The Experiment” (on newsstands July 14), we led you here to my daily journal for a chance to win a free sampling of Kuaiwi Farm’s products featured in our “Every Woman Has a Story” section. Kuaiwi Farm is a five-acre organic farm in Hawaii, where owner Una Greenaway grows Kona coffee, macadamia nuts, cacao, bananas, avocados, pineapple, oranges, lemons, limes, passion fruit, and more. I didn’t get a chance to meet Una in person, but for my 62nd b-day and Mother’s Day this past year, my daughter surprised me with tickets to Kona for just the two of us. Visiting Kona was life-changing for me, especially because now I’m hooked on Kona coffee and fresh macadamia nuts:) It’s time for me to share my newfound joy in life. For a chance to win a 16-oz bag of Kuaiwi Farm’s Kona Old Style Medium Roast Organic Coffee AND an 8-oz bag of her Raw Macadamia Nuts, tell me about a woman farmer you know (or know of) and why you admire her in the comments below. I’ll toss your name in a hat and draw one lucky winner in mid-September, when the Aug/Sept issue expires on newsstands. Stay tuned for more magazine-related giveaways! If you’re not yet a subscriber to my magazine, MaryJanesFarm, subscribe here for just only $19.95 a year:)
