Soon we will be headed to Native Seed Search for some seeds for our summer plants. There is a local seed exchange coming up also which we will be attending to hopefully trade/swap some seeds and starts. Details on the seed exchange here: TBG Spring Seed Exchange.

Also super excited to get invited to help participate in a new gardening program being started here on the reservation for recovery program. Looking forward to helping out in any way we can.

Thank you, and many blessings ~ Pete
