We recently received the  very kind note on our electronic mailbox. How could we not share it?

Hello Greenwood Space Travel Supply Co.!

I'm getting in touch with you guys because I think I may have found myself in a business/storefront form today. When I started my undergraduate journey at the University of Florida in the fall of 2005, I initially decided that astronomy was going to be my preferred route and final destination in life. I have a huge love for the great wide unknown. The grandness of it all is so compelling that, in my humble opinion, it's baffling to think anyone wouldn't want to study it's persistent mystery. Eight classes into my future in astronomy, there wasn't a single assignment that I didn't think was the hardest thing I ever had to do. The math was getting way over my head, the concepts were becoming more and more complex, and I eventually decided that my future in astronomy was probably safer in the hands of casual reading, BBC documentaries, and kitschy sci-fi flicks. I then decided to make the obvious transition to becoming a graphic designer instead. I still, however, worked (and work) space themes into my projects/pieces whenever it's possible. I wrote my senior art history research paper on science fiction magazine cover art from the 30s, 40s, and 50s, I made a board game in my junior year (when my classmates and I were all young pup designers) about "making the planets align" in order to conquer the universe... it's on my website to this day. All this being said, you can only imagine the kid-in-a-candy-store reaction I had when I stumbled across Greenwood Space Travel Supply. I was in my room laughing and bouncing up and down at how wonderfully creative, and well designed the items were. I'm now on both email lists, and you can expect to be soon sending an order to me out in Austin, TX. Keep up all the killer work.

Your friend,

Terraforming starts at home.

As any well-versed space jockey will tell you: “A lack of preparation is a prescription for mishaps.” This is exactly why it’s important to start planning for the winter holidays in July (or even better, in May). One can never start too soon--particularly when it comes to the most important decoration: the Holiday/Christmas Tree.

Of course I had to pop the top on one of Dr. Darwin’s Breath of Life ® Christmas Tree kits. Everything you need, including sweet sweet Terra Firma, is provided on one compact can. It sure makes hauling seedlings to un-terraformed moons a cinch.

Our little buddies have recently begun to sprout, and I’m excited to watch them grow over the summer and into autumn.

These Norway Spruce are an exciting bunch. They can grow up to three feet in a year,  so--fingers crossed--they will make it through the harsh Greenwood summer and be ready for decorating and present-sheltering come December.

If you’re interested in taking a gander at the little seedlings, they’ll be on display in the Greenwood Space Travel Supply store until they begin to crowd their little home. I’m letting the plantletts take root here Because earth’s gravity is far more hospitable to plants than outer-space. I’ll also be checking in periodically to make sure my assistant isn’t neglecting them, so maybe I’ll get to say, “Hello!” to some of my adoring fans.

Also available, in the same convenient kits: tomatos, pansies, basil, celery and more.
