Burpee Seed Welcome Home Garden Project

Burpee Seeds is again doing their Welcome Home Garden initiative and has sent Welcome Home Garden Kits through the Military 4-H Partnership Program to the State 4-H Office for distribution to currently serving military personnel and veterans.

Burpee Seed Company has an initiative called "Welcome Home Garden," 10 packets of seeds (8 vegetable and 2 flower) designated for veterans, service members, and their families.  The packets include Zinnia, Marigold, lettuce, tomato, spinach, sweet pepper, radish, cucumber, carrot, and squash.  The packets are already assembled with recipes included.  The retail value of the content of each pouch is approximately $25 but the harvest value is conservatively $1500.

Requirements:

1. The Burpee seeds are to be used with military families, military youth, and veterans throughout the state.

2. Seeds need to be planted.

3. Photos of the events and use of the seeds to share with Burpee are appreciated!
