Plant Sale


I cannot resist a school garden plant sale. I went out to Petaluma to the at Valley Vista Elementary school plant sale on Saturday and bought some heirloom tomato seedlings along with some mint and cosmos. I wish that every elementary school in the US had a school garden program. I believe that it is very important for children to get their hands dirty and understand better where our food comes from. The respect for the earth that you gain when you spend time out in a garden cannot be taught in a classroom. I would love to help in a school garden as a volunteer. Although I don’t have any children of my own, I do really like most kids and would love to teach gardening lessons someday.
