Though the challenges of 2020 are immense, we truly believe every action matters, regardless of how small. Just as bountiful, nutritious food arises from a single tiny seed, we can re-connect with joy, hope and tenderness by caring for that seed. To that end, we’re excited to offer programming and supplies to support at-home seed exploration. Below you can find links to brief videos guiding students through the materials needed to explore soil, seeds, the water cycle and suggestions for simple, fun experiments.
