Kids Plant Heirloom Seeds at Fort Caspar

By  | 

Kids get their hands dirty, with a little gardening.

Fort Caspar Museum staff let kids plant heirloom seeds the same kind used over a hundred years ago.

It's part of "Family Fremont Fun Day" where kids were given chances to plant heirlooms.

Heirloom seeds are different from other plants because they aren't genetically modified, and they produce more often.

Jayme McGoonan the Educator Fort Caspar Museum says, "We've got almost all the pumpkin planted. All planted by the kids that have come out. We've been letting them plant the pumpkin plants so. You know more of a community involvement kind of garden

The program gives kids a point of pride within the community.
