Fellow Associate Editor Jennifer Kongs and we lucked out when a Puyallup, Wash., FAIR workshops were scheduled: We got to benefaction during a kids’ stage, assisting kids brew homemade seed-starting mix, adorn pots and plant veggie seeds.
Here is a seed-starting brew recipe we followed if you’d like to try consistent your possess during home:
18 quarts vermiculite
12 quarts coir
12 quarts compost
3/4 crater (5 ounces) blood meal
1/2 cup (5 ounces) limestone
1 2/3 cups (1 pound) greensand
A million interjection to a friends during Peaceful Valley Farm and Garden Supply for donating a reserve for a workshop.
The kids had good fun — and generally desired removing their hands dirty. They might have been a small bashful during initial …
But eventually they all dug in with gusto!
The kids were all smiles when they satisfied that removing mud all over a place was not usually allowed, though encouraged.
Jennifer helped any member select either they wanted to plant broccoli, lettuce, beans or kale.
We done some smashing friends and had a blast. Be certain to move your kids to a subsequent MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR to suffer a fun, hands-on workshops.
