Mount Desert Rock is a barren, desolate island 26 miles off the coast of Maine, yet there was a lighthouse station there that needed tending before the days of automation. One year, towards the end of the 19th century, fishermen felt so sorry for the family that had to live there, they brought in bags of soil, which the family crammed into cracks in the rocky ledge, and seeds that produced such an abundance of flowers and vegetables in that soil that the island became known as “God’s Rock Garden.” This true story is the basis of a new children’s book, Lighthouse Seeds, written by Pamela Love, illustrated by Linda Warner, and published by Down East Books of Camden, Maine.
