Contact Shawna

Shawna Coronado at the G2B12 event

One of my favorite things about having this website is hearing from you. You tell me about your life and share hilarious stories, recipes, and photos. Your emails and letters make me smile, cry, laugh, scratch my head, and occasionally shoot iced tea out my nose. Your notes truly make my day, so please keep them coming!

Sometimes the volume of emails I get every day makes it nearly impossible to respond to each and every one of you right then and there–a fact that I truly regret because I love all of my peeps.

Please understand that while I may not answer you immediately, I definitely read your email and I will try my best to get back to you as soon as I can. If you will take care to make your subject line short, but informative, it helps.

Lots of Green Love,

    Hi Shawna,
    Beautiful site! I have a question for you about the Vacation product you recorded a YouTube video about. Is it possible to use this product for more than two weeks? Would I have someone come by and the end of two weeks and give another watering with the same amount of Vacation as the first dose?

    Thank you – I’m leaving in about 10 days, so I hope you will have a chance to answer this question before then.

      Hi Gabi!

      YES! You can use the Vacation product for another two weeks. Do not let anyone come and water before the two weeks is done, then when they do come, have them redo the process you started out with. I found better success when I doubled the dose of the Vacation product, so you might try doing that as a safety feature. πŸ™‚

      I’m not sure if what the company guarantees, so if in doubt, please give them a call. Thanks much!

      Best of luck!

      Your garden sounds lovely Thomas. I am working to create more garden ideas for people who are disabled or suffering from conditions like osteoarthritis, like I do. Thanks for your note.

    I was at the garden show Saturday in Joliet and heard you speak. I didn’t get all the foods you gave up to feel good and take no more medicine and no more pain. Could you please let me know the foods you gave up to feel good. I thoroughly enjoyed your talk and learned a lot.
    Thank you

    At the CFGS in March, I caught a snippet of your talk. You mentioned some unique way to plant tomatoes so that
    the stem is stronger. I jotted down the word sideways. Can you please repeat? Thanks!

    Hello Shawha I am about to notify your book Living Wall in Danish newspapers and instead of scanned images I could use something better. For example (in the Danish version) side 25,3842,63 and 64 or just send me 4 photos you think are good. Lars Lund garden journalist

    Hi Shawna; I really enjoyed your lively and encouraging workshop at the Mother Earth News Fair in Albany, Oregon. Hearing how much you have suffered from arthritis and how it limited what you love to do, I was inspired by your doctor’s recommendation to eat only certain foods to help you improve your quality of life; such as, vegetables, fruits, chicken, fish, good oils and eliminating beef, shellfish, sugar, grains, and dairy. I’m not sure if this a complete list. You generously offered to the attendees that you would send out the recommended list of foods to eat and avoid to help those of us who also suffer painful arthritis. Your doctor’s recommendations made sense to me, and seeing how happy you are now and the vitality and health that you enjoy was encouraging. Knowing that making a healthier dietary lifestyle changes can help me become not only healthier but help ease the pain. Can you forward me a more comprehensive list of foods to eat and avoid? Your garden is beautiful! Thank you and keep up the good work!
