The St. Peter's Seed and Herb Company
We had another seed and herb bagging work day. These four children from the Special Needs class are bagging oregano. A week ago they pulled all the leaves off of several plant stems (fragrant work). I took the leaves home to wash and lay out to dry. When I brought the leaves back I asked who wants to help bag the leaves? These four children jumped up and ran to meet me at the door. They like doing garden things. In addition to oregano, we also sell zinnia seeds, epezote leaves (a de-worming medicinal plant), marveillos (flower seeds), and basil leaves in packets. After Easter holiday the children will sell the packets for 50cents each during the morning and afternoon break.
