When asked, "What value have you gained participating in Seeds Center programs?"
We received this amazing response:
I value my time, I saw how this program made me take the time in the morning to go somewhere and I realized that time can be made special if you make it special. Time waits for no one and thanks to this program it's made me see how I should spend my time to live my life to the fullest with no regrets.
Pat Kelly Recommends on Facebook: Loved participating in Seeds inter-generational learning experience HIGHLY RECOMMEND. I hope to see this group grow into a a nationwide movement of groups sharing their collaborative, creative. ideas as the generations learn from each other. Exchange of ideas, presence, and love in each other lives with forward insight and expression.
AND, 100% of our anonymously polled students would recommend Seeds Center to others.
