    Just wanted to drop you a line to tell you thank you for keeping this post up – I am hoping we will get permission to make a keyhole garden at my school this spring. The cafeteria manager and I are looking at starting a class for the children at school on nutrition and the theme of this year’s lessons is gardening – this is the simplest idea and will fit the lessons just perfectly! I am trying to think back to the original post though – I thought there was a link to a print out that had the steps in picture form – any ideas?
