A Note from Nancy

Save the Date: Friday, April 7th at 1pm - A Field Trip to the Kennedy's
This field trip is a great opportunity to see first hand how to start seeds in your basement!  Bobby has built a fantastic germination room in the basement of their home where he starts thousands of annuals and vegetable seeds.  He nurtures and grows these plants in the basement until they are ready to be planted in their yard. 
Directions and further details will be sent out closer to the tour date.
