From Green Committee

After our seed planting activity at the Hoedown, we have extra recycled seed planters and seeds. The Green Committee would love to offer a "planting packet" to any class that is interested in doing a seedling project. Each packet includes seed planters made from paper towel rolls, seeds and potting soil. We have 3 varieties of peas - Sugar Snap Peas, Alaska Peas & Melting Sugar Peas.

We currently have enough planter packets to supply 6 classrooms. We will contact the first six teachers who respond to set a time/date to deliver the packets to your classroom.

If you would like a set, please email Virginia Collom at vacollom@gmail.com with the number of students in your class and your choice of pea variety.

Thank you!
