Organic Seeds Fundraiser!Order through our online storePickup Friday 12-5pmIn-person shopping available as wellThis spring we’ve partnered with High Mowing Organic Seeds to raise funds to support this year’s produce donations and on-farm education programs. We have a selection of seed packets for sale in our store and some carefully curated gift box collections available for purchase as well. These easy-to-grow varieties will do great in garden beds, containers or pots. Get ready for the first plantings of the season with salad greens, peas, radishes and broccoli, and start thinking about tomatoes and peppers, which can spend 6-8 weeks inside before being planted out in May.Soon we’ll add seedlings grown in our greenhouse to this fundraising effort, which will be available for pre-order and purchase throughout the spring. Early spring crops like lettuce, peas, kale, broccoli and more will be available starting in late March, while summer crops like tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and squash will be ready in May.This week we have lettuce, carrots, kale, radishes, eggs and our jarred tomato products are all available in our store. Supply of eggs and our freshly harvested produce is limited, so we suggest ordering online, but you can also shop our farm store in-person on Friday, from 12-5pm. For those who can’t make it to the farmwe’ll be at the CitySeed Winter Market on Saturday. The winter market is located at Conte West Hills Middle School, 511 Chapel Street.Store dates (Fridays, 12-5pm): Feb 10 & 24, Mar 10 & 24Market dates (Saturdays, 10am-1pm): Feb 11 & 25, Mar 11 & 25
