Grow your own groceries! As expected, there has been much interest in the signage slogan that we made for our Freedom Gardens table.
The story behind the “My Other Supermarket is My Garden (TM)” slogan started over 7 months ago when Farmer D cleverly used it to describe what Freedom Gardens is all about – empowering people to grow their own food closer to home.
Farmer D’s slogan will be made into some signs or anything else that is useful like cloth bags. Although we wanted to print up some propaganda asap, we had a to wait.
Why? Well it’s a long story but it has to do with a whole bunch of people ‘borrowing’ our intellectual property and not crediting the source (yeah, I know that stinks). I’ll spare you the dicey details but we did learn a valuable lesson – always, always protect yourself, especially here on the internet! So we had to wait a few months until the slogan was registered as a trademark.
Also there’s been some inquiries about our aprons. The lovely lady that made ours is no longer making them anymore (last I heard) but we have made an inquiry to some very talented sisters (no, not us) and they are sewing some up as we speak.
Stay tuned for details.
