Stories From Our Team
"We'd like to thank Juliet Webb from our Kitazawa Customer Service and Sales Team for coming up with the idea to sell this wonderful children's book with all of the seeds from the story. She did an excellent job at helping with the translations and ensuring we were selecting the right varieties of vegetables. It's been great reading the book to our kids and getting them excited about growing new vegetables this year."
