Help Us Share the Knowledge of Vegetable Gardening with Others!
Dear Friend: Thanks for taking the time to read these articles. I sincerely hope they are helpful to you and those you love.
My whole desire in running the Foundation is to teach families around the world to grow their own healthy food. This mission consumes all of my days and most of my retirement money - which I don't mind! I chose it, and I love it.
However, the only way The Foundation can be successful in helping people is if they know we're here, and then visit the website to get the knowledge they need.
How will people find out about these resources? The internet is the most powerful tool ever devised by man to spread knowledge! And the primary way people use it is with Search Engines. But if you are not on the first page of a search, most people will NEVER even SEE you! We must therefore improve our ranking in the search engines, in order for people to find us.
And you can help! First of all, if you find the website and/or the free Gardening Group (MittleiderMethodGardening@yahoogroups.com) helpful please tell people! But beyond that, we must have many links from other websites, since that is a major way the search engines rank a site. So, if you have a website, or if you know of anyone who has a website, PLEASE ask them to place a link to the Foundation's web pages from their Links or Resources page.
Most folks don't want to just help someone else sell a product, but that's not what we're about anyway, so suggest they place the link to the Frequently Asked Questions page http://foodforeveryone.org/faq/ or the excellent ebook in the Learn section at http://foodforeveryone.org/vegetable_gardening/20/what-is-the-mittleider-method. The Home page is best for us perhaps, or the Store page, but whatever others are comfortable with is just fine.
One kind of website that would be MOST HELPFUL as a linking site, is any website with an .edu ending. Do you know of a college or university student who has a website, or who has access to one which would consider a link to us? We are an educational website, and any edu site linking to us will help us FAR MORE than other sites (but any link is great!).
PLEASE CONSIDER THIS REQUEST CAREFULLY! "By small means are great things brought to pass." A few people always stand at the fulcrum of change. And you, who know something about the Foundation and the materials we are giving to the families of the world, are in a position to make a HUGE difference in our ability and opportunity to do good in the world.
Please give me your feedback and let me know of anyone I can visit with about linking our site to theirs.
THANK YOU for your interest in vegetable gardening and your participation with us! And thanks for taking the time to consider this request.
