Planting Justice and CitySown are teaming up this Spring to grow plants. This is an exciting collaboration and large shift in CitySown’s purpose:
Imagine a table of tomato starts… On the wooden table is a small placard describing Planting Justice a local non-profit that grew these particular varieties. Large placards rate the plants’ edibility, medicinal value and give detailed growing instructions. There are many varieties of tomatoes that fruit well in the bay area. On the ground near the legs of the table is a flat of tomato trees for sale.
As a board member of Planting Justice and a full believer in the organization’s mission and business structure, we will be using my roof top nursery to produce starts for Planting Justice. We will be starting to sell to local nurseries in the Bay Area. CitySown will still list free available plants for local gardeners, but the site will primarily function as an informational hub for urban permaculturalists.
Two roof-tops are better than one!
