Once a week for thirteen weeks students are handed a copy of ‘Seedfolks’ at the beginning of advisory, homeroom, or another class. Students and teacher read a new chapter about another character who enters the garden and in their own very special way makes it a better place. Thirteen different people from all different walks of life enter the urban garden and share something very special as the summer brings growth and prosperity to the garden. As students are reading, the teacher asks probing questions about numerous character education traits exposed in the story. The following day each team of teachers uses an activity they developed to reinforce the chapter they read the previous day.
