1.From Generation to Generation
Consider the miracle of the seed. In just 100 days one tiny seed weighing no more than 1/250th of agram matures into a 8 to 9 inch head of broccoli weighing a pound or more, better than a one hundredthousand-fold increase in just over three months. The most brazen stock market trader wouldn't dreamof such profits!Too many children grow up with no conception of what nature can accomplish or where our foodcomes from. Do they think it appears spontaneously on a supermarket shelf, or worse, at their localfast-food establishment? How can we restore understandings about food, a most basic need?We dream that every child in every classroom will be given the opportunity to start seeds, grow agarden, experience the vital sensation of their hands working in the soil, the thrill of watching theirseeds sprout and their plants grow, the satisfaction of working together with others to take part in amiracle.To help fulfill this dream Fedco offers From Generation to Generation, a seed education program withgrade-by-grade activities to bring young gardeners through the full cycle from seed to seed. Bygrowing gardens and saving seeds, young people can reconnect to past generations of farmers andgardeners, renew food and farming traditions in their own community and work together to plant asustainable future.CR LawnFedco Seeds
