Seed Store! Sage and William have seeds for sale!

The kids have been collecting seeds (see that here) and have decided that we have too many for us to use so are going to sell some! They are selling organic heirloom seeds that they have grown and collected themselves :) 

Will & Sage are learning about the entire process of making money. So much to do: collecting money, posting items, marketing, cost V profit and the list goes on!

Marion - Love the idea, but didn’t noticed where you live. I guess if you have to send them by email, that’s not very ecological..
