Second Annual Seed Bee
Patrick Henry Charter School
Richmond, Virginia

Posted at\PatrickHenryCS\2014Form.htm

Dear Parent:
  1. In 2013, we had a seeding bee in which students brought an egg carton in which seeds and soil were placed (pictures). A few months later, many thank you cards were sent to "Gardener Bob," the local retiree who inititated and organized the seed bee.
  2. This year the seed bee is simplified into 12 common vegetables. The first egg carton is free. If you want a second, it is $3 for the PTA funds. Any gratis donation would not be refused.)

Dear Student:

  1. If you take care of you plants you will learn a lot about yourself and life which will help you have a happier future: patience and persistence.
  2. You will find each day being like Christmas morning as you look for what Mother Nature grew overnight and left for you as a surprise.

    1. You use only 20-25% of water.
    2. You water only the plants.
    3. Plant roots go deeper rather horizontal.
    4. You do not water the air which infects your plants with airborne diseases.
      "Gardener" Bob will provide a drip workshop where you can buy only the needed length for your garden. See Drip or Skip.
