Greetings from sunny David, KY!
This is S. Ann Marie Quinn writing to share about a new website that I found recently while doing some research. I have been very impressed with what I have seen and appreciate that they seem to hold many of the same values that we hold at Grow Appalachia. The website is: Terroir Seeds- Quality Open Pollinated Heirloom Garden …www.underwoodgardens.com/
Read below their response when I signed up for their e-newsletter and see what you think.
Yesterday, April 30th, on a very cold rainy day, I participated in a health fair in S. Magoffin called Planting Seeds of Health. I set up a table for Grow Appalachia, had copies of our calendar of classes and contract agreements, along with a very nice tri-fold poster board that KC made last year. (Thank you Kathy Curtis!) For the adults I had three questions with a prize to the person with the most correct answers. Answers were given verbally. How would you answer the questions which follow?
- What vegetable is really classified as a fruit?
- What is the difference between hybrid, heirloom, and organic?
- What root vegetable has edible greens which are usually not eaten?
For the parents and children I had free printables from another of my favorite educational websites: http://www.nourishinteractive.com/nourish-interactive
The calendar for the month of May says, “Have Fun in the Sun and Grow a Garden!” Each day of the month has an activity to do with children. I had the fun gardening printables (coloring pages, word searches, word scrambles, matches, etc.) on hand along with the calendar. On 20 something young lady even enjoyed sitting to color and visit. There is a plethora of other topics covered on this website besides gardening: recipes, good nutrition, and more. Check it out and enjoy!
Until next time, have a blessed weekend! And, happy gardening!
