Seedling Drive To Be Held At Sisterhood Gardens This Weekend

Gardener Anna Chen visits her plot at Sisterhood Gardens to tend her vegetables.

Sisterhood Gardens, the community garden located on Brotherhood Way, and the all-things-gardening company Fog City Gardener will be selling vegetable and flower seedlings this weekend benefiting the Sisterhood Gardens Food Security Project.

“Food security is a huge concern in the time of the pandemic,” according to a Facebook post about the sale. “People are experiencing loss of jobs, income, health, public transit, and access to fresh foods.”

The seedlings are between three to six weeks old, usually in 3″ to 4″ or in small six packs. Each costs $3.00.

The general public can order plants online. Sisterhood Gardens members can get one plant for free. 

Orders must be made by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, May 22 for pick-up between 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 23. Delivery is available.

There will also be a free seeds and ornamental plant table for the community.

“If you have clippings and/or healthy plants you want to share, bring them along to share at the table marked ‘free plants,’” according to the event posting. “Please only bring healthy plant specimens into Sisterhood Gardens and practice social distancing when accessing the table.”
