There’s still plenty of time to buy seeds for your own garden. If you live in a climate like we have here in Maine, a great place to look for high quality seeds is at the School Garden Project’s seed site. The school only carries local heirloom and standard varieties that are best suited for the cooler climate of Maine. Just print out an order form or send an e-mail and the students will fill your order the week it arrives
Seeds are also for sale at Mr. Paperback, EBS, Belfast Coop, Wildflower, the Middle School and the Aarhus Gallery. Seedlings of heirloom tomatoes, onions and herbs are also available at the THMS greenhouse by early May.
April vacation is when we put our peas in the garden and some of the best are the Early Frosties, which are also available through the school’s seed program.
We owe a great thanks to the hundreds of supporters/ volunteers that have helped over the years. The School Garden Project would not exist without you
