2018: SGGN Volunteers Nurtured More than 17,000 Starts

Many of these were Spring and summer greens; others were warm weather crops such as squash — and 2900 of these were tomatoes.  So how did your Giving Garden Starts produce in 2018?

We were tired and are happy. Already we’re thinking about 2019.  Within the next several weeks you should see a survey sponsored by the City of Seattle asking how the Sprouts grew for you in your Giving Gardens. But we can tell you from our own personal experience:  those starts resulted in many tons of produce sent to food banks and to their clients, to shelters, and to kitchen missions.  Seattle’s Gardeners: you’re great!



May 18-20 Tomatoes (and last plant distribution of the year)

Confirmed: we’ll distribute tomatoes May 18-20, 2018 at the Ballard greenhouse location. We planted the seeds and this year they ALL sprouted: so please come and get them for their new homes. Some summer lettuces also remain. There’ll be a few boxes to use to take them to your giving garden, but it’s best to bring your own. And this will also be a good time to bring back those 4 inch square pots. (Preferably clean).
