An entire section of the bulletin (illustrated with etchings from old seed catalogs) is devoted to heritage gardening activities such as plant prints and seed medallions. The book is designed for 4-H’ers who are interested in horticulture, Folkpatterns, foods and nutrition, and photography. (48 pages, 1992)
