Sowing True Seeds- a story about a few determined 5th grade entrepreneurs

A small group of fifth grade Student Supported Agriculture leaders have been working diligently through the snow, ice and rain to nurture our first Evergreen Peace Garden entrepreneurial adventure. prepping flats

These determined kiddos have worked hard every day at recess to plant seeds, water them and manage our hoop house to keep things warm  and dry.

Check out these DIY seed warming tables two of our awesome parent volunteers built.  They've worked beautifully!

Their hard work has paid off! Little sprouts have grown into sturdy plant starts and tomorrow we'll sell our first batch of plant starts back to Sow True Seeds for them to sell at The Organic Growers School this weekend.
