Saving Community Seeds
This spring has been a whirlwind at our farm, as well as at community and school gardens, with our development of the seed library program. Our seed saving effort is gaining much traction as we not only grow them ourselves, but work with others to teach them the how-to of growing out healthy plants to save healthy seeds. This includes school gardens, where children are introduced to the wonderful world of seeds! Our stellar intern, Robbie has worked tirelessly this school year teaching kids about growing food, starting from the very beginning: seeds! How magical when they discovered they could grow an enormous plant from a tiny little seed, enjoy it's pretty flowers and watch in awe as more seeds are produced at the end of the season. Through Robbie's hard work, over 50 students were exposed to the wonderful world of seeds, healthy food, and gardening. Hopefully some of these young gardeners will become the future seed savers in our region, and join our growing seed library revolution! We are so grateful to Robbie for instilling in young gardeners the joy of growing, and the wonder of seeds.
KGI is a nonprofit community of over 30,000 people who are growing some of our own food and helping others to do the same.
