Our Little Roots is an activity kit for kids that focuses on teaching hands-on lessons in sustainability and cultivation. Our Little Roots is a monthly gardening subscription, and you’ll receive your choice of non-GMO herbs, veggies, fruits, or flowers seeds, organic soil (you can plant it right in the bag), and stakes for the garden. Your mailing will be customized for your growing season!
Subscribers are encouraged to share their lessons and pics with others in the OLR community.
Inside the outer envelope is a cute cloth sack containing the soil, seeds, and garden markers for the project. The bag can certainly be repurposed and has a drawstring top.
The contents of the bag. You get organic soil, some garden marker stakes in case you plant among other plants, and the seeds themselves. The seed package has planting and care instructions. You can choose between fruits, vegetables, flowers, or herbs, and all seeds are non-GMO and organic. We received Basil Cinnamon, a spicy variety of basil.
This is a nice simple project to do with kids, and it is always fun to watch things that you planted grow into something beautiful or edible. I like that the soil is organic — if you choose the herbs, you know that you will be able to add them to your food without worrying about contaminants. With an annual (no pun intended) subscription, the monthly price drops to $7.95, making it a better value still. However, we’d like to see some sort of intro card for new subscribers on how to use the kit, and we’re really not entirely sure about the appropriateness of basil for September – I don’t think it has the time to grow? It would definitely be helpful to have some kind of guidance or customization depending on the region of the subscriber.
