The money we make goes a long way to fund creative seed planting programs with schools in New York City, a place where children have little exposure to nature.
Are these seeds invasive? Invasive species are a huge global problem costing nations billions of dollars a year to fight. Always plant seeds in a controlled way, either in your garden or in a container. It's best to research a seed before planting to see if it is potential problem.
