Fascination of Plants Day 2016 -- Seeds grown on Earth and shipped to space!

Fascination of Plants Day (FoPD) is celebrated around the world on May 18th.  Although this worldwide event runs every other year and the next one is planned for 2017, smaller and local events were encouraged per individual and local interest on 2016.

What a better way to celebrate FoPD than learning about the awesomeness of plants and the seeds they make!
