Carol Niec & Kerrie Rosenthal from the Seed Keeper Company share about the sweetness of life during the Festival of Lights on this edition of Voices from the Garden. 
About the Seedkeeper Company:
The Seed Keeper Company came about when Carol & Kerrie tried to find a better way to store their seeds. Together, they developed a seed filing system for seed packets and captured seeds complete with tips and seed planting accessories. The accessories were chosen because they are important to the seed starting process. The plastic clip-lock container is rugged enough to go to the garden and solid enough to protect delicate seeds until the next planting season.
