You can learn more about the 2019 classes here; the Seattle location is on Beacon Hill, focuses on the challenges of growing on small plots of land in the city, and is $5.00 per class. This same link also has a very useful list of peer-reviewed resources for us veggie gardeners.
Our deepest gratitude for the support of our crowd-funding campaign in November. Thanks to you the Sprouts planting and distribution program continues, the seeds from donors will be distributed, and we can help the Giving Gardens with maintenance needs.
Funds are used for seed-starting mix, seeds, transplanting soil, and heating mats; additional funds are used to support the food bank giving gardens themselves with replacement wood for raised beds, repair of water systems, and purchase of small tools.
We are so grateful to the local nurseries City Peoples, Urban Earth Nursery, West Seattle Nursery, Swansons, Sky Nursery, and Bellevue Nursery — and to Renee’s Seeds/Cornucopia and to Territorial, Burpee, and Victory seeds for the vegetable seeds we send along to the giving gardens, low income gardeners, and food banks and their clients. Growing veggies is about hope: and you make us hopeful.
Hooray, our last few spring-y days have coincided with the first of the plantings by the volunteers for the Sprouts project. And they’re peeking above the soil.
And to also know: we’re distributing seeds provided by donors to the giving gardens again this year. If you haven’t heard about the city’s Community P-Patch fairs: please be in touch via email. (We won’t have an independent Spring gather this year, but have chosen to support the city in its efforts.)
Thank you, everyone!
