The Luray Garden Club was awarded second place from Virginia Federated Garden Clubs for the Seed Saved Education Project conducted with the schools.
Copies of “The Saved Seed,” by Brenda Moore were purchased by the Luray Garden Club and given to all Page County elementary schools and public libraries last fall.
In the spring of 2018, former elementary teacher and counselor, Linda Dudley and her granddaughter, Courtney who is studying to be a teacher, shared the book and hands-on seed activities with two 4th and two 5th grade classes at Springfield Elementary School and one kindergarten class at Luray Elementary reaching approximately 125 students and 9 adults.
