Seedfolks tells the story of a diverse community in Cleveland, with each chapter narrated from the perspective of a new character. Over the course of the story, neighbors’ lives are intertwined as they come together to turn a garbage-filled lot on their block into a thriving community garden

Focused Instruction for 6th grade now recommends Seedfolks. For 7th and 8th graders who didn’t read it in ELA, I definitely recommend it! The characters are realistic and have great personal stories to tell.
