Imagine walking into a room filled with over 100 varieties of climate appropriate seeds ready to literally be scooped up and taken home for planting or saving. This is exactly what the Great American Seed Up is all about. “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. We are partnering 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.
Pre-register for your tickets today!
Two dates and multiple times slots to choose from.
A confirmation email will be sent to you right away. Later we will send information about the Seed Education Portal separately, as well as a reminder with any updates on the event.
Attendees are encouraged to buy and share the seeds with their neighborhood and community groups to spur local gardening and seed saving efforts. “We’re trying to get seeds in the hands of the people,” says Seed Up co-organizer Bill McDorman of Seedsave.org. “The more seed diversity we have growing in our neighborhood gardens and backyard plots, the more resilient we’ll be as a community. These seeds are the best varieties we can find in bulk to help you start your seed saving adventure.”
Seed Up Education Portal:
Included with pre-registration for the Seed Up will be access to our Seed Up Education Portal with several previous Seed Up presentations, and Urban Farm's Seed Chat Podcast episodes with our seed and gardening experts. These presentations are designed to spread knowledge about traditional and modern seed saving practices.
