Over the last couple of weeks, the children have been helping John save seeds which is the practice of
saving seeds from vegetables, grains, herbs and flowers for use from year to year for annuals and nuts, trees, fruits and berries for perennials and trees. This is the traditional way farms and gardens were maintained, for generations.
We have collected seeds from pumpkins, butternut squash, sunflowers, perpetual spinach, sweet corn, apples, plums and loads of types of beans and peas. All the seeds have been dried and will be used for the children to plant in the garden next year.
