Last Sunday, June 19th, I was lucky enough to spend time planting seeds with kids. It was an opportunity for them to learn about where our food comes from, why seed saving is important and to plant a seed to give to Dad as a Father’s Day gift.
The seeds were donated by Cubit’s Organics rare, heirloom and organic seeds (thanks Laura!).

I’ve added a few photos of the kids who participated…aren’t their sweet little faces adorable!
