When people engage in activities to sustain their personal daily needs, disaster healing begins.

Fresh Start Garden Kit provides a quick start to regain dietary, mental and physical health. With the Fresh Start Garden Kit, displaced people can eat fresh foods in 45 days. The Fresh Start Garden Kit provides an immediate shelter, a water resource, and a way to grow fresh vegetables.

The Fresh Start Garden Kit ships in an 8 x 10 reusable food and water container with:

1 multiple use 6 x 25 polyshield heavy guage plastic sheeting (one side black, one side reflective) is ideal for creating:

q      immediate shelter cover

q      water capturing device

q      in-ground planter liner

Vegetable Seeds:

q      Carrot

q      Onion

q      Garlic

q      Tomato

q      Pepper

q      Celery

q      Spinach

q      Green Beans

q      Cucumber

4 8 x 1-1/2 plastic dishes and coco fiber, a medium for growing seedlings ready for transplanting in 30 days.

1 32 ounce bottle of organic hydroponic nutrient for growing plants (makes 192 gallons, enough to nourish and establish a garden for a month).

A Garden for Niki, a 20 page family gardening handbook on how to grow and maintain a garden, make organic hydroponic nutrients, and much more for young and non-english gardeners to learn how to take charge and make grow.

1 Scissors for cutting heavy plastic

1 Roll of duct tape

1 Bar of castile soap for making insect spray.

Once seedlings are large enough for transplanting, growing containers are created to plant the garden. Growing containers can be created from found materials, such as wooden shipping crates lined with plastic sheeting, or by digging container shaped holes and lining with plastic sheeting, or perhaps a plastic tub with a small hole cut in the side for drainage, all presented in the handbook.

The plastic sheeting has some possible immediate uses.
