Flowers at the Farmer’s Market a Success


In celebration of Earth Day, a group of students, myself included, has a lovely time at the winter farmer’s market, planting sunflower seeds in pots with children.   We provided the seeds, pots, soil, water, and tags for painting with names and colors.  We engaged with as many people, young and old, gifting the potential for a magnificent Russian Mammoth Sunflower.  All in all, we gave away a few dozen sunflowers to the public.  We hope that they will keep them well sunned and watered, and that the summer will see at least a few of our sunflowers grow to glorious maturity.

Thanks to all those who participated!
