3rd Annual Seed Sale moved to March 21 – tell your friends and neighbors!

The 3rd Annual Belvedere Seed Sale, organized and run (as usual) by our third grade, will be held next week instead of tomorrow thanks to Mother Nature. The students, who are studying economics, have been busy preparing for the sale: decorating seed envelopes, counting out and packaging seeds, labeling envelopes, voting on pricing and what to purchase with the proceeds, and training for jobs: merchandise manager, inventory, quality control, customer service and cashier.

Plants with an * are native. That means they originated in this area, are adapted to the climate and are low-maintenance. Once established, they don’t need watering except during severe drought.
