Urban Seed Saving Gardens

We’re growing  a diversity of heirloom crops in five Urban Seed Saving community garden plots across the region in order to promote the growth of unique heirloom crops in diverse spaces, provide ingredients for our cooking programs, provide an opportunity to share skills and stories, and increase the quantity & quality of locally grown seeds available in our community.

Help us clean seeds harvested from GreenUP Ecology Park and Nourish Urban Seed Saving Gardens?

We will provide seed cleaning equipment, teach participants how to use it, and provide some snacks!

You are welcome to bring your own seeds, and we can help clean them too. Communally grown seeds will be eaten, re-planted and available through our Community Seed Library in 2017.
