Celebrating school gardens and much more at the National Heirloom Exposition

The National Heirloom Exposition was truly a feast for the eyes and the stomach! Hundreds of school children were bused in from around Sonoma County to visit the Expo on the Educational and Fun Day. They visited heritage breeds of livestock and poultry, participated in arts and crafts of the past such as candle dipping and leather tooling,  learned about seed saving, cheese making, worm composting, participated in the School Garden Network’s bean mosaic activity, and much MUCH more! And many school garden programs put together wonderful exhibits which were informative and inspiring. Thank you to the Petaluma Seed Bank, Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds and everyone else that helped to put on this fun event and to our SGN Board members who spent many hours volunteering at the Expo!
