Alternatively, consider reading our companion title for all ages:  Seedfolks by Paul Fleischman. Similar to Attleboro’s Community Garden which was established on a former parking lot, Seedfolks tells the tale of an inner city garden established on a vacant lot. Several, multi-cultural individuals join the effort to create an oasis of beauty and sustenance in their own neighborhood.  ”A gift for hearts of all ages, this gentle, timeless story will delight anyone in need of a sprig of inspiration.” –Amazon.com, editorial review
