The newsletter Sowing Seeds was started in 2006 as a way of communicating with the participants in the WPPC’s mentoring community and other property owners in the McHenry County area and beyond.  After several years, the content of the newsletters was consolidated onto SowingSeedsJournal.com as a way to make the information available on an ongoing basis.
