The Master Gardener’s of Clallam County want to continue to gets children and their families growing. How about some free seeds?
With the help from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds and the Organic Seed Alliance, about 800 packets of vegetable seeds have been packaged and donated. Seed packets will be available in Sequim and Port Angeles at the sites for free school lunch pickup.
Vegetable seeds include a variety of scarlet runner beans and bush beans. Other packets include a mix of zucchini, summer squash, winter squash, kale and a bright purple leaf vegetable called orach.
Youths are encouraged to take them home to plant in their yard or in a large pot that gets lots of sun. By following the simple instructions on each package and adding a little fertilizer and water and love, this summer might be full of delicious, nutritious home-grown vegetables! Science at it’s tastiest.
Master Gardeners are always available to answer questions and help with troubleshooting. Youths and parents can send their vegetable gardening questions to a Master Gardener by emailing to email@example.com.
