26 Seeds: A Year to Grow 2023
Reggie Ezell

A note from Reggie: Do not feel that you must have all the supplies purchased for the whole year. You will already have many of the items. Just give yourself and the suppliers as much turnaround time in between sessions to comfortably get your orders to you. Please DO have the supplies for our first session in advance.
