Seed Saving at Rummel Creek Elementary

"School gardens are a powerful means of instilling lifelong environmental and nutritional literacy among children. These gardens can serve as living laboratories for hands-on exploration and learning, and seed saving can be a strong component of teaching ecoliteracy."

by Tina M. Poles' from  "A Handful of Seeds"

Students at Rummel Creek Elementary recently had the opportunity to learn about the importance of seed saving and how to collect seeds for new plantings. The photos below illustrate the current activities at all our school programs: seed saving from summer and fall planting broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage transplants.
