GROW YOUR OWN
Raíces Eco-Culture is holding its annual seedling sale so our community members and neighbors can grow their own food while supporting Raíces Eco-Culture programs. From tomatoes and cucumbers to broccoli and greens to culinary and medicinal herbs, Raíces has planted and been growing over 80 varieties of seedlings from organic seed, saved seed and non-GMO seed this year.
Many of the seedlings will be transplanted into our Raíces micro-farm plots in New Brunswick, Piscataway and Bound Brook, but there are more than enough to go around for YOU to plant in your gardens and yards. All seedling sales will support our Eco-Culture programs. Please pre-order, as a limited number of each variety will be available. Some of the frost-hardy, cool weather crops will be available by April 20 and tender, warm weather crops will be available May 15.
Seedlings for sale in the fundraiser will be first come first serve. We will do our best to keep the plant list up-to-date, but if something is unavailable when you send your order, we will let you know. Please send your orders (plant list and desired quantity) early by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will arrange a date and time for pickup of your seedlings at one of our community garden plots. The Raíces crew may also be available to help plan, prepare and plant your chemical-free garden plots as a fundraiser for our eco-culture programs. If you have any questions about that or about the seedlings, feel free to contact us.
