A Good Cause

May 9th, 2013

This past weekend, I stopped at a few of our local conservation district plant sales.  At one, there were a few grade schoolers selling packs of seeds to raise money for a new garden shed for their school garden.

I couldn’t pass them up without buying any seeds from them, they were so enthusiastic about their fundraiser. I loved that the seed packs are decorated by students. They even had a little catalog.

There’s nothing I love more than helping out industrious kids, especially when they’re trying to better their school garden. I didn’t really need any more seeds, but I couldn’t pass this up!

Have you purchased any interesting items from local kids recently?
