We recently read a book called Seedfolks by Paul Fleischman. It took place in the midst of three buildings in Cleveland, Ohio. In the middle of the buildings, there is lots of trash. But in the course of a year, the junk yard turns into a beautiful garden. But, it did not just turn into a garden, it turned into a get-together with many different types of people. Reading Seedfolks really inspired me along with others to plant a garden and thanks to the book and a lot of hard workers, Rye Jr. High now has a garden in the back lawn.
Kim. A young girl who was inspired by her father to plant a garden. Kim knew exactly where she wanted to plant her seeds. In the middle of three apartment buildings in the inner city of Cleveland, Ohio. Kim had a special connection with planting things. Before he passed away, her father was a farmer. So, Kim decided to follow in his footsteps and plant some sweet old lima beans. So, Kim picked a spot behind an old refrigerator and took the seeds one by one from the bag. Throughout the book, people followed after Kim and picked a spot and planted different fruits and vegetables.
I had a lot of fun reading the book Seedfolks. It really made me appreciate that plants are available to us and that we can grow them. I hope this book will be read by many people and that they would be as inspired as I am.
