The Great American Seed Up is returning for the sixth year this September. The event supports and guides home gardeners looking to expand their planting repertoire and knowledge.
What: Great American Seed Up
When: Sept. 25 & 26
Where: Online and bulk seed bazar at North Phoenix Baptist Church, located at 5757 N. Central Ave., Phoenix.
The foundation of the Great American Seed Up is educating the community about home gardening and the importance of seed saving. Instead of in-person lectures and classes, educational webinars and podcasts will be provided, assuring participants learn the basic skills needed to save seeds and produce healthy soil and plants. Topics will include seed patent laws, seed terms, tomato seed saving, container gardening, healthy soils, drip irrigation and more. A large bulk seed bazar will be held allowing participants to purchase over 100 different types of seeds including fruit, vegetable and plants that thrive in the southwest climate. http://www.growphx.com/seed-up/
