Three Greenhouses

The Ballard Sprouts, South Park’s Providence Regina House Food Bank, and a small back yard greenhouse grew more than ten thousand starts for Seattle’s Giving Gardens. 2017 should be a very good year.

Tomatoes ready for planting

Thank you to all of the volunteers who planted, nurtured, transplanted and transported these wonderful plants.

Ballard Sprouts plant give-away Saturday May 20, 2017

This plant giveaway is for those who are planting giving gardens for food banks and meal kitchens. You should have received an email about this; most of the plants will be at the greenhouse in Ballard. Some will be at the Providence Regina House Food Bank (in South Park) during its regular hours (9-noon). The plants include warmer weather starts such as beans and squash and some tomatoes. A heat-tolerant lettuce Jericho will also be available.
