planting the seeds of an idea

Post  Fran on Mon May 19, 2008 11:20 am

"The seed project is about You can purchase seed packets, which also contain instructions, in batches of ten - the idea being that you use one and give the other nine to friends. You then grow your seeds in some creative way, send a photo of your work back to the Seed Project, and wait for the next exhibition, where your plant will be shown along with its siblings- the same plant, each grown in a different way. Then, hopes founder David Cohen, you'll organize your own Seed event or start a totally new project with fellow growers.
...
The other goal is more straightforward- to get people to grow plants. Cohen believes that many of our social and environmental problems can be traced back to the disconnect between city dwellers and nature. Through the Seed Project, he wants to give people a creative way to develop consciousness on a small scale- consciousness that will hopefully translate to larger decisions they'll have to make. Cohen's found particularly fertile ground for this idea in public schools, where he's currently working to start seed projects among students that they'll then exhibit and share."

Hi Fran
Just catching up with this thread...That seed project site is fascinating.

I love to see school gardens.The Seed Saver's Network here in Aust have a great booklet available for free download as a PDF on this site.
Called 'Seed To Seed' it has been written with schools and teachers in mind but is a great source of info.

Thanks for the link about the bears in the playground but did you see this one of the baby panda.
Awww he's (or She's ) soooo cute!!

BTW (and completely Off Topic) this link is an interesting snippet about the earthquake and the pandas from Wolong panda reserve near the epicentre of the Earthquake.

Sent that link straight off to the grandsons Scarecrow - wonderful photos - thanks flower

Will check out that other link.

Yes heard those pandas had no one to feed them and the Chinese govt had come to the rescue - haven't kept up to it to see how they were doing.
