Make Seed Tape with Us Sunday, April 9th at 2:00pm

Seed tape is a clever little invention where small or hard to handle seeds are embedded into strips of paper that you can lay on the surface of your garden.  This way the seeds sprout in straight lines and they will be evenly spaced, not all clumped together in one spot.  We will provide seeds and paper, you provide a garden plot and help them grow.   We will also have seed matching games to explore and lots of different seeds to examine with a magnifying glass.   Cost for this activity is $9.14.  Come on in or give us a call at 206-546-4851 to register your Junior Gardener.
