Since next week I am going to help 500 children plant seeds in soil blocks to place in cold frame tables, this first one, Sementivae, is fun.
Sementivae - Old Roman festival of sowing honoring goddesses of earth, grain, and seed.
Mahayana New Year – The Mahayana Buddhists celebrate their new year with the first full moon in January, which makes sense to me.
Tu B’Shevat – A Jewish birthday party for trees. Because all trees like a party.
Imbolc– BIG DEAL old-ass festival. It’s ancient. And, just like Vasant Panchami, it’s about the first signs of Spring.
"Though I do not believe that a plant will spring up where no seed has been, I have great faith in a seed. Convince me that you have a seed there, and I am prepared to expect wonders." - Henry David Thoreau, The Dispersion of Seeds
