The sixth anniversary of The Seed Keeper Project kicks off today as a way to recognize school gardens across the country. Since the project began, the campaign has recognized more than 250 school gardens in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

The Seed Keeper Project's goal is to place a spotlight on school gardens and the important work they do to educate the next generation of vegetable gardeners. The project is the brainchild of the two founders of The Seed Keeper Company, a business that's known for developing clever products for keeping gardening projects organized.

Starting today, the company will post the names of 10 states, in alphabetical order, on The Seed Keeper Company Facebook page for each of the next five weeks.

Anyone can nominate any K-12 school by posting on The Seed Keeper Project's Facebook page.

The Seed Keeper Company will draw school names at random at the end of each week and post the winners on the page. 

Each winning school will receive a Seed Keeper Home Farmer kit, a certificate of recognition, a membership to the Seeds of the Month Club and a copy of Garden-pedia by Maria Zampini and Pamela Bennett.

The Seed Keeper Home Farmer kit is a handy way for a school garden (or any vegetable garden) to store seeds. The kit includes A-Z and monthly dividers, planting tips, recipes, seed-saving envelopes, plant stakes, labels, seed sorting dish and much more.

"We believe it is our responsibility to take part in educating coming generations about the benefits of gardening and particularly growing your own food," the company explains. "We are the winners of The Seed Keeper Project! Our winning schools inspire us!"
