Joel Froehle has been a wonderful addition to our staff this season, and while we were potting up acorns on Sunday, September 23rd, we learned that Joel’s 4 year old son, Sam, is fascinated by acorns. We immediately invited Joel to bring Sam to the nusery so he too could plant some acorns.
A quick phone call, and Sam’s mother, Beret, brought Sam to our potting station and the photo you see here was the result. I am reminded of the old saying, ‘The fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree.”
It’s a wonderful opportunity when we have a chance to share our love of gardening and trees with the next generation. We hope you will find the right moment to share your love of plants with our most precious resource – today’s children who will become tomorrow’s leaders!
