You are important to God - so important that He wants you to be all you can be for Him! Girls -- Have you ever wished you had an older woman--someone besides mom--to talk to about important things? Do you sometimes find it hard to understand what God is saying in His Word, the Bible? Would you like to feel more comfortable in social settings like fancy dinner parties? Do you like to have fun? Appleseeds is for YOU! Moms -- Do you sometimes wonder what your pre-teen is thinking? Do you wish for an older woman's advice? Would you like help in developing your daughter's self image and social skills? Have you longed for a Bible study that was uniquely crafted to teach your daughter about God? Would you like to spend some time having fun with your daughter? Appleseeds is for YOU! Appleseeds is a unique mentoring program for girls ages 9 to 12. The purpose of Appleseeds is to teach young girls how important they are to God, to their family and to others around them. They will learn that they are created in the image of God, that they are valuable to God and others. Like Apples of Gold, Appleseed classes are held in Homes with 'Grammy' mentors teaching the Bible lesson. Moms of the girls will come to help with the etiquette and craft sessions. They will be taught that serving God and others is a high calling, and hopefully, everyone will have lots of FUN in the process.

Johnny Appleseed and the American Orchard illuminates the meaning of Johnny "Appleseed" Chapman's life and the environmental and cultural significance of the plant he propagated. Creating a startling new portrait of the eccentric apple tree planter, William Kerrigan carefully dissects the oral tradition of the Appleseed myth and draws upon material from archives and local historical societies across New England and the Midwest. The character of Johnny Appleseed stands apart from other frontier heroes like Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone, who employed violence against Native Americans and nature to remake the West. His apple trees, nonetheless, were a central part of the agro-ecological revolution at the heart of that transformation. Yet men like Chapman, who planted trees from seed rather than grafting, ultimately came under assault from agricultural reformers who promoted commercial fruit stock and were determined to extend national markets into the West. Over the course of his life John Chapman was transformed from a colporteur of a new ecological world to a curious relic of a pre-market one. Weaving together the stories of the Old World apple in America and the life and myth of John Chapman, Johnny Appleseed and the American Orchard casts new light on both. -- James Gilbert, University of Maryland
