Here's a collection of downloadable coloring pages that explore a few themes relevant to organic growing.
Teachers and families are encouraged to use these with your youngsters.
Farmers at Farmers Markets, Farm Stands, or with CSA's might consider sharing printed copies as little bonuses or lagniappe for their customers with children.
Grown-ups who enjoy transforming black and white line art into something far more beautiful (and perhaps informative) are invited to download and color these as well.

Most of these coloring pages are reprinted from NOFA-NH's newsletters from the 2010's when the outstanding herbalist and author Maria Noel Groves was providing editorial leadership. They were designed by NOFA-NH Board Member, educator and artist, Edith Pucci Couchman.
Edith was also the primary illustrator for the 2020 NH Indigenous Calendar project developed by NH Farm to School, the NH Indigenous Collaborative Collective and the Cowasuck Band of the Pennacook-Abenaki People.
