Swiss Chard - Perpetual Spinach

Swiss Chard – Perpetual Spinach

Raíces Eco-Culture is holding its annual seedling sale so our community members and neighbors can grow their own food while supporting Raíces Eco-Culture programs. From tomatoes and cucumbers to broccoli and greens to culinary and medicinal herbs, Raíces has planted and been growing over 80 varieties of seedlings from organic seed, saved seed and non-GMO seed this year.

Many of the seedlings will be transplanted into our Raíces micro-farm plots in New Brunswick, Piscataway and Bound Brook, but there are more than enough to go around for YOU to plant in your gardens and yards.  All seedling sales will support our Eco-Culture programs.  Please pre-order, as a limited number of each variety will be available.  Some of the frost-hardy, cool weather crops will be available by April 20 and tender, warm weather crops will be available May 15.
