From Hayes Swinney, Interim Executive Director at Mountain Roots Education:
I've attached a few photos from the height of our growing season earlier this year to show you how well the sugar snap peas grew in our school garden in Tetonia, ID. We had a bumper crop in mid July and then got a substantial second round of peas in late August without us doing anything special, which was a pleasant surprise! The peas are so tasty and popular, the kids asked if they could take some home to their families.
In addition to using the seeds in our school gardens in Teton Valley, ID, we also used the donated seeds to happily spread the word about Snake River Seed Cooperative as our regional seed company, and we were able to share seeds with our community at booths we had at some local events.
We attached slips to our seeds as outreach for our organization.
Handing out the seed packets also proved to be a great way to engage folks in conversation about what our organization does.
Thank you again for the generous donation and for partnering with us!
