On october 28th mark and i visited with the hotchkiss 1st grade classes for a seed saving activity.

i wish that brought the camera!
after reading a book about farming and food to the kids, they jumped right into it. mark explained the importance and details (on a 1st grade level) of seed saving. we brought in the very sticky, and somewhat green tail-end of the tomato harvest for the seed. the kids were delighted to get their hands dirty squishing the the fruit into a half gallon jar that will stay in their classroom for about two weeks until we come back for straining and drying.
