If you’re on a budget but want to grow your own food, this seedling sale is for you. Not only will you find affordable veggie and herb plants at $2-$3 each (!) but you’ll take home varieties that are open-pollinated and organic. This means you’re supporting varieties of plants that in these days of commercial supermarkets have become rare, you don’t have to worry about pesticides on the plants and you can save your seeds to plant future crops or trade them. As well, you’re supporting non-profit, urban gardening projects.
Before gardening shopping think about your gardening space, how many plants do you have room for – do you have a garden in your yard or are you using containers? What kinds of plants do you want to grow? Make a list of what you want. Then bring that list, along with some cash and a bag or a box to carry the plants and enjoy the adventure.

You’ll find a list here.
