Growing Your Own Food and Taking Care of Your Garden
If you like growing your own food and taking care of your garden you will want to #SaveThoseSeeds and check out the #GreatAmericanSeedUp!
Picture yourself entering a room with over 100 varieties of climate appropriate seeds ready to be scooped up and taken home for planting and/or saving. This is exactly what the Great American Seed Up is all about: #SaveThoseSeeds. “The idea is to give valley residents an opportunity to learn about seed saving and then harvest as many ounces of seed they wish to take home,” says Farmer Greg Peterson, Urban Farm Founder and local seed saver. The Great American Seed Up partners with the Uptown Phoenix Farmers Market. The event features a seed bazaar with bulk quantities of popular vegetable seed varieties available for purchase at bulk discounts.
