With thirteen main characters, you can bet we're going to encounter plenty of families in Seedfolks. And that's just what we get. Many of our leading ladies and gents move to Cleveland as a family, which means they need to tackle their new surroundings together. Other players have lost relatives and are looking for some way to connect with the family that's no longer with them. And guess what plays a big role in connecting families together? You got it: the garden.
