Attention - Shipping

The transition of our inventory to a new warehouse is taking longer than we anticipated. As a result, we are experiencing fulfillment delays and order(s) are taking longer to ship out. We are working hard to get the stock moved to our new facility as quickly as possible so that we are better equipped to meet your needs. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.


The sight of young children eagerly reaching for and eating string beans, carrots, lettuce, radishes, and even raw beets and onions is an incredibly satisfying one for a science teacher. The experience of growing food is a natural motivation for getting children to eat more healthful food. Tending a garden can make this process real and help children to make connections between farmers who grow food or raise animals and the food that arrives in the stores.
