program. They came to share their knowledge of plants, seeds, and to explain how they provide us with food. Then they helped the students plant marigold and zinnia seeds. Some will be planted in the side garden on the school property. One of their plants will be taken home to enjoy. When these students return back to school in the fall as second graders, they will witness a beautiful garden of zinnias and marigolds.
