CALDWELL, Idaho — Members of the Caldwell Free Methodist Church had over ten thousand seed packets to hand out to the community as part of their first "Need for Seed" event.

Spring is just around the corner, and the congregation wanted to give members of the community a chance to start a garden of their own.

With many events across the Treasure Valley being postponed or canceled due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19, the church had no plans of doing either.

"It’s been a good turnout, especially considering the state of things right now," said Michelle Tracy, the event coordinator at Love Caldwell. "It’s been great to see everyone come out and kind of just have a good time. All the little kids are smiling and laughing, and it’s just good for your heart.”

Caldwell Free Methodist Church hopes to make "Need For Seed" an annual event. Leftover seeds from this event will be given to the Caldwell Public Library if you're interested in fruit, vegetable or flower seeds you can find them there next week.
