Adaptive Tip As always, we can include an adaptive tip. For those with poorer dexterity, use a plastic mug as a scoop. Look out for the symbols indicating which activities build or suit those with specific skills - featured in Year-Round Gardening Activities book.

Fun Fact Did you know? Tomatoes Have Been to Space! 600,000 tomato seeds went to the International Space Station before being grown in classrooms all over Canada as part of the ‘Tomatosphere I, II, III and IV’ experiments. These experiments happened due to a desire to understand the effect of outer space on seed growth and development.
