Celebration Giveaway!

My online friend and fellow blogger has reached her 600th post on Back to the Basics. She wants to celebrate, and wants all of you to be included in her achievement. I have offered to join her in her amazing giveaway, which includes more than what is here. So, I invite you to get to learn more about Mary, and please indulge your self in her giveaway.


Can you tell I'm excited this morning?  It just dawned on me several days ago that I was inching towards post #600.  I decided to  get together a super fun giveaway for YOU and share a bit about me and what's been going on.

Who is Mary?
I'm not your average "Martha."  I love cooking and creating although my "crafting" is a bit more Mad Scientist than Suzy Homemaker.

My husband Doc is a Chiropractor and together we own a wellness-based chiropractic office.  We have 2 sweet fur babies Rocky and Lucy who make the occasional appearance on the blog.  I have worked in chiropractic offices for 12 years as of this month!

The garden is my stress relief and at the moment it's a mess!  I created Back to the Basics as a way to share health information when I became more interested in health and GMOs back in 2009.  I also blog over at Mary's Kitchen.  After a break from blogging I came back in full swing with Mary's Heirloom Seeds and the fight against GMOs.

Mary's Heirloom Seeds continues to grow with the awakening of people around the world to the dangers of GMOs and the disgusting chemicals and pesticides used in conventional growing around the world. If you're looking for rare seed varieties or REAL Heirloom, non-GMO varieties Mary's Heirloom Seeds has got you covered!

In August this year I decided to take the next step and opened up a super cool booth at the Yellow Green Farmer's Market as well as offering Workshops in our office in Hollywood, FL.  The first 2 workshops have been such a success that I have 2 more planned for October.  I'm really excited for the future while enjoying the present!

The Giveaway
I have decided to offer several different prizes for the 600 Celebration.  There will be 4 different winners!  Prizes include:
Garden Gift Basket
Basket includes 24 peat pellets, 1 pair women's size medium gloves, plant markers and4 packs of heirloom, non-gmo seeds
"Basil 3 Ways" Seed Combo Pack
 Get all 3 varieties we carry of organic, Non-GMO, heirloom Basil Seeds.

Mary's Organic Sprouting Kit 
Includes: wide-mouth glass jar (quart size),  lid with screen, 2 oz.  Organic sprout seeds and detailed sprouting instructions.

Mary's Real Food Cookbook
"To me, real food means homemade.  It's simple, healthy food with an occasional decadent dessert.  The book would not be complete with out Great-Grandma's 14 Karat Cake.  Recipes include a mix of traditional, exotic, light and sinful all in one compact book."

1 Month Ad Space @ Back to the Basics

And More!
Over the next few days I'll be sharing Product Reviews, Guest posts and DIY Projects to celebrate.  Also, World Food Day is Saturday, October 12.  Do you know where the nearest event is taking place?  I do!  Stay tuned!

The giveaway is LIVE and will end Wednesday, October 16th at Midnight.  The Ad Space is open to ALL countries but I reserve the right to refuse ads based on content. The rest of the prizes are open to residents of the US and Canada.
