SEEDY SUNDAY

9:00 am -4:00 pm

We open one day during the winter to offer seeds and seed starting supplies for our customers. Whether you are a well seasoned seed starter or trying it for the first time, we can help. We have fresh seed in stock as well as seed growing supplies. This year during Seedy Sunday will have a special focus on pets. Copies of our popular handout Houseplants and Pets will be available, it answers the question, “Which houseplants are safe if I have pets?.” Come in to select your favorite organic vegetable plant seeds to grow.
