You may count the time you work on your trial(s) as volunteer hours. You may also choose to include outside groups to do the trials such as school groups, boy / girl scouts, community groups, etc.
We'll test six varieties in each trial. You may select one or more of the following to trial: cilantro, zinnia, eggplant, fennel & kohlrabi (three varieties of each), morning glory, snap peas. You need to devote a minimum of eighteen (18) row-feet to the test, and evaluate all varieties in your chosen test. Note that both morning glories and snap peas will need space to climb. We will mail you your seeds and forms on March 1st.
