PIERRE, S.D. – If you have vegetable seed packets laying around that you won’t use, South Dakota’s Ag in the Classroom program would like to have them. The seed packets can be opened or new. Any kind of vegetable—peas, corn, radish, carrot, squash, pumpkin, tomatoes, etc.—are needed.
AITC will use the seeds in Ag Week kits with the book “Who Grew My Soup” by Tom Darbyshire. Seed donations can be mailed to: SD Ag in the Classroom, PO Box 402, Miller, SD 57362. Seeds are needed by Jan. 15, 2016.
For donations received before end of year, the value of the seeds can be used as a tax deduction.
