Olive Barn Giveaway

This giveaway has ended. Thanks to all that entered
In honor of 9-11 I wanted to find Eco-friendly companies that carried USA made products. I came across Olive Barn and had to share them with you! Olive Barn is a Eco-friendly garden and home retailer located in Houston, TX. The owner, Jaqueline D'Elia started Olive Barn in 2000 and is the author of the Olive Barn Blog as well as the Southern Post.

Olive Barn carries amazing garden supplies that are truly unique. Check out these SeedBallz:
You just throw them in your garden, water them and watch them grow! No planting involved. I am the worlds worst gardener and as much as I love plants and herbs, I leave that up to my mom. But, I think I could actually grow something with the SeedBallz!

Olive Barn carries Rice Hull pots which are a great plastic alternative. I love the earthy colors. The pots are made from renewable grain husks and rice hulls and are 100% biodegradable. The pots have drain holes at the bottom for proper drainage, but I still managed to kill my herbs that I planted. I then handed over the pot to my mom and she was able to start growing some aloe for me. Those of you with a green thumb, check out the Organic Herb Garden from Olive Barn. You can choose from 18 different organic herbs to plant in your Rice Hull pot for only $10!

Another thing I loved from Olive Barn is the Danielson Designs 100% recycled wood signs that are made here in the US. I love hanging signs near my doors for people to read on their way in or out. These are the amazing signs I got to review!
They are 8 1/2 X 2 3/4" and fit perfectly next to my backdoor. The sign comes with a wood peg inserted in the back so you can easily stand it on a table top, bookshelf or flat surface. You can also hang them in hallways, bathrooms, or even next to your bed for a morning inspirational quote. The signs are also available in 23X4" Garden Signs. They have a huge selection with a variety of different quotes great for everyone.

The Discount: Olive Barn is offering all of my readers $10 off any purchase of $40 or more. Just enter MKOK-10 at the checkout until 9/30/09
