The book Seed Folks involves many different kinds of plants. It involves a community garden in Cleveland, Ohio. The garden was not always a garden, it used to a garbage dump before a young girl began to secretly plant peas. One day a girl caught a glimpse of her planting the peas in the ground. As she was watching through the window she was very curious and ran down there to make sure she wasn’t planting anything illegal. As she went down she dug up the ground and before she knew it she ruined was the little girl had made. So trying to pull herself together she rushed to put the plant back together with no luck. Seed Folks is all about bringing a broken down community into a working together community.
One of my seed packets is for a Seed Folk named Sam. Sam is a very involved and friendly type of person. He is always willing to put himself in front to help out whomever even if it is a complete stranger. He decided to make pumpkins because he would make good money because of carving for Halloween. I think I made a nice choice for this seed packet.
For my last seed packet I did my little dog Franklin. I chose to make him a Venus fly trap because he likes to nip people who are playing with him. He is a dog who loves to be played around with and be around with. He isn’t a dog who runs away he is always staying by your side if you make his day. This is the reason why I chose to do Frank.
