Right now I have not read much of Seed Folks. The format is kind of weird because it all ties in to the other stories but, it leaves you hanging because it only tells so much about one person. My favorite character so far is the old lady. I like the old lady because she seems knowledgeable and she did something bad by digging up the cucumbers so she plants something herself. I think the big idea is that a community can turn a rundown scrap yard into a garden. Or that as a community you can accomplish anything. My favorite activity is the flower making in Mr. Howard's class. I think the rock painting was also fun.
