Thank you Tess, really helpful. I've never been a green thumb and this has been a godsend for me. Simple and detailed. We finished the the classroom projects and have planted our first crop outdoors. I downloaded the adoption certificates and the the children check their adopted plant everyday. The P&C have started to raise funding to build an raised garden bed after I showed them your other book. If you're ever out our way please drop by. I'll send our details to your blog.

Getting back to our "roots" would help all of us in so many ways. Thanks for "planting" gardening ideas in our thoughts!
