The other farm begins to use some of the seed left over from last year’s harvest (local-seeds) to plant its crops each year.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
