Seed Saving and School Gardens

Seed saving is one topic that gets short shrift, in our consumerist surroundings where seeds are readily available to purchase.  We miss the reverence for life in saving seeds in knowing that they will return life in the following or near future years.   So we're happy to see that "OAEC's School Garden Program announces the release of "A Handful of Seeds"- a new publication on seed saving and seed study for educators." to help support community resilience and bring children into the effort.

The guide is available at their website, and "inside you will find lessons linked to California Educational Standards, practical information on seed saving in the school garden and seed history and lore."
