Yes, every year we donate 2   4-week 'trial' shares to our local public
radio auction. It's always a very popular item, and I believe it gets the
word out. you can limit the months, ours needs to be used between June and
October, our lushest months produce-wise. We also donate a 4-week share to
local school auctions as well.
