Seed Keeper Project 2016 Winners

Year six of the Seed Keeper Project is in the books. 51 more schools with gardens have been recognized and awarded with prizes for their efforts. We hope you’ll take a moment to page through our Facebook page where each of this year’s winners were posted individually with a link so you can learn more about their gardens.

Research consistently shows that schools with gardens see improved attendance, higher test scores and boosted moral. Students who grow vegetables are more likely to try them. The benefits of a school garden are many.  We applaud the work of faculty and volunteers who bring the garden experience to students. Your work is important.

Hold your planting horses!

Okay, our seedlings are growing and the weather is improving and we nearly have to tie our hands behind our backs to keep us from digging the ground to plant them. It seems this year, after such a crazy , long winter, we are all so ready to get in the garden. We envy our friends in the South and the far West because they are pretty much in the clear to plant. Here, we impatiently wait.

What are we waiting for? A few things need to be in place before it is safe to transplant tender seedlings to the great outdoors!


Hold your planting horses!

Our seedlings are like “green” children to us. We care deeply for each one. Plant nuts! Timing is everything when it comes to gardening. If you take some careful steps the journey for plants from indoors to the garden can be quite easy. Here’s what we do to insure successful transplanting.

  • Become a weather watcher. Familiarize yourself with the last frost date in your zone. Use this date as a starting point for choosing when to transplant your seedlings. Weather is a fickle thing.
  • Why watch the weather? It’s important to know about the ground temperature and the air temps–particularly the night temps. A sunny 70 degree day is great. But, when it’s followed by a 30 degree night it can mean disaster for tender plants. Our Twitter friend, @HandyHelen gave us a cute guide for knowing when the temps are right for planting in the ground. She says: 5 days at 55. We think that sounds good–if you have 5 days and nights with the lowest temp of 55 then it’s safe to plant. This of course comes with the caveat that no unusual cold fronts are forecasted. You may choose for the soil to be slightly warmer.
  • Watch soil temperatures. You can purchase a soil thermometer for this task or some local weather reports will give this information. Love those farm reports! There are different requirements in soil temps for direct-sowing seeds and transplanting seedlings.
  • Seedlings MUST go through an outdoor acclimation process called “hardening off” before they can be planted in the ground. For about a week we bring our seedlings outside to enjoy the warm days and get used to the elements like wind and sun. Early in the process we protect our seedlings from harsh sunlight. Yes, we have fried a few seedlings. Mother Nature is a very good teacher.
  • It is also recommended to stop fertilizing seedlings about a week before transplanting to help minimize root shock. Resume feeding once plants are in the earth!
  • Make sure your soil is ready for planting–aside from amending the soil with your favorite amendments-soil is ready for planting when it crumbles easily.
  • Newly transplanted seedlings should be watered well.


Truth–the best way we have learned to transplant seedlings is by doing it. We have gained knowledge through “trial and error” even after reading volumes of articles on what to do. Plants can be amazingly resilient and forgiving.

Raising our planting trowels and wishing everyone a successful planting season.

See you in the garden,

Kerrie and Carol

“Our” Chicago Flower and Garden Show

Saturday, March 15th marks the opening of the Chicago Flower and Garden Show. This is quite exciting to us! Beyond the fact that we are exhibiting at the show (Booth 140), we feel a sense of pride about “our” city and “our” flower show! Between us we have lived in well over a dozen places. In gardening terms, we are transplants to this wonderful city we have chosen to call home!

Chicago is a gardening city and the perfect setting for a “flower” show! Despite the sometimes cold and long winters–and this one has been one for the record books–Chicagoans like to grow! While the need to grow has had a resurgence and more and more people are coming in to growing their own food, this is not a new idea for Chicago.

Peterson Garden Project

Our friend, LaManda Joy, founder of The Peterson Garden Project and author of The Yarden blog, schooled us in some Chicago growing history. She tells us that an “army of gardeners” fed Chicago in 1943. WWII was in full swing and our resources were being used for the war effort. During that time there were 14,000 plots gardened by children throughout the Chicago Park District. 174,000 Victory Gardens were spread throughout the city. The most mind-blowing fact is that 90% of the people doing the work had never gardened. These rookie gardeners produced more than 55,000 pounds of food.


Here we are on our first visit to one of the Peterson Garden Project gardens.

It is happening again with the guidance and passion of people like LaManda Joy. The Peterson Garden Project (PGP) is a contemporary redux of the Victory Garden. PGP has seven gardens, 664 plots, 520 volunteers and 2,650 gardeners. What is created in these gardens surpasses the produce they yield. People not only eat better, they feel part of something bigger and community is built.

The Chicago Flower and Garden Show

The Chicago Flower and Garden Show is another old idea (started in 1847) with a very fresh face. Here’s what we love about the show– it is a hands-on show full of creative, practical ideas that can be embraced by every gardener. We have been going to the show for many years and have watched it evolve from pretty flowers to real-world gardening. Believe us, you’ll see plenty of gardener’s eye candy there in the form of gorgeous displays and arrangements. But, the take away is practical garden advice that you’ll implement in your own garden. We believe this is what distinguishes the Chicago Flower and Garden Show from others.


We hope if you live in or around Chicago or happen to be in the city from March 15 through 23rd that you’ll come to the flower show. You’ll see the Peterson Garden Project there. We know simply smelling the plants will draw us all out of our long winter funk and prepare us for the spring! All of the gardening that is happening in Chicagoland brings a smile to our faces.

Come with us to the Chicago Flower Show. Together, we can embrace the show’s mantra — “Do Green. Do Good”. Words to live by in our sweet home, Chicago.

See you in the garden,

Kerrie and Carol


School Gardens are Important

A garden is a grand teacher. It teaches patience and careful watchfulness; it teaches industry and thrift; above all it teaches entire trust.       Gertrude Jekyll

For gardeners like us, it’s easy to see the benefits of teaching children to garden at school. It’s not a leap for us to imagine a garden at every school because the benefits are so apparent. Fresh air and digging are natural for children. Many organizations have examined the benefits of having a school garden. The research reveals improved classroom participation, higher test scores and more. We love the intangibles children learn like a love of nature. If we look beyond the obvious, school gardens have greater effects. Children who spend time in gardens are more engaged and understand where food comes from and like it more because they grew it. They learn patience and nurture. We know these things without hardcore research.


Classes of children can’t wait for their time in the 2013 Seed Keeper Project winning Dunbar Garden in Little Rock This is a magical place where children are free to learn and explore!

The Seed Keeper Project

Our Seed Keeper Project awards winning school gardens with a Seed Keeper Home Farmer and a Certificate of Recognition for their efforts in the garden. It is a small token compared to the great things happening in these gardens. Ultimately, we are the winners and have a front row seat to see the wonders of school gardens.

Marvin Elementary

Missouri Seed Keeper Project 2012 winner Marvin Elementary School! Awesome school and garden!

When we began to build The Seed Keeper Company we made a promise to ourselves that we would find a way to give back to the community-at-large. Our inspiration came in the form of a blog about a Chicago high school. When we read about the impact of the garden on the students and the dedication of the sponsoring teachers we instinctively said, “Let’s sent them a Seed Keeper.” The light went on at that moment and we discovered our way to give back. That was four years ago! Since then, we are proud to say we have recognized more than 150 schools in all 50 states through The Seed Keeper Project. The U.S. Department of Education recognized The Seed Keeper Project during our first year.

We have countless stories to tell of the wonderful work that is happening in school gardens. One of our favorites is about the 2010 Seed Keeper Project winner for Idaho. The Southwest Idaho Juvenile Detention Center may seem like an unlikely place for a school garden. In reality, it is perfect. A year after we made the award we were contacted by the director of the center. He was so thrilled to be honored by the award. In closing he said, as an aside, that the children and their garden donated more than 2,000 pounds of produce to the local homeless shelter. We gasped at the quantity. Our Seed Keeper Project award was not the story here. It was the donation of a ton of food to those in need from children in a difficult spot.

We could go on for days with the many stories we have learned about the success in school gardens from making produce available in food deserts to bridging cultural divides. The outcomes from school gardens are nothing short of fabulous.

We hope you’ll participate in The Seed Keeper Project. Together, we can make a difference.

See you in the garden,

Kerrie and Carol


The Seed Keeper Project is coming… & more!!

Gardening is a very important part of our lives and we believe it is a skill everyone should have the opportunity to learn. When we started The Seed Keeper Company we made a promise to ourselves that we would find a way to give back to the community at large. The idea that everyone should have exposure to gardening and our promise came together in the form of The Seed Keeper Project.

What is The Seed Keeper Project?

Each year we recognize school gardens from all 50 states and the District of Columbia with the award of a Seed Keeper Home Farmer and a Certificate of Recognition! School gardens are the perfect spot to expose the young to gardening and we are amazed at the creative ways schools tie gardens to curriculum! These gardens are special places and we are honored to recognize them.

To date, with your help, we have recognized more than 150 school gardens in every state of  the entire United States! The United States Department of Education recognized our efforts during the first year of the Project! Let’s make the Seed Keeper Project  2014 the best year ever!

 The Seed Keeper Project begins February 3rd!!

Join us as 4th Annual Seed Keeper Project begins on Monday, February 3rd. We need your help to make this a true garden community success.  You will have the opportunity to nominate the school gardens to be recognized. Look to our Facebook page on February 3 where we will post the first ten states. Then,  we will ask Facebook followers to nominate K-12 school gardens. Who’s eligible? All K-12 schools–public, private, charter–all are welcome to nominate. On Friday of that week we will post the winners on our FB page. Should we get multiple nominations for a state we will use Random.org to select the winner. This is your chance to sing the praises of the school gardens you know– maybe it’s the garden from your childhood school or the school your children attend or maybe it’s the garden in your back yard and it’s a home school project.  Don’t be shy! We want everyone to nominate!
