Raíces Seedling Sale Fundraiser 2017


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. This year we focused on tomatoes and herbs, both culinary and medicinal. All seedlings are organically grown and have not been sprayed or treated with any chemicals. Some varieties are heirloom, all are open pollinated.

Check out the plant list below and send your orders by email to raices@raicesculturalcenter.org (please include plant name and desired quantity for each type of plant you want). Tomato, strawberry, catnip and mint plants are ready and available for pickup. Other herbs and our golden celery will be available after June 1. We will send a confirmation email and arrange pickup details with you upon receiving your order.

Seedlings for sale in the fundraiser will be first come first serve.  We will do our best to keep the plant variety list up-to-date, but if something is unavailable when you send your order, we will let you know.
