Vance Elementary Seedling Sale

Hey Asheville Peeps!

Tomorrow Vance Elementary is having a big fat seedling sale to fund programs and projects at Vance! We did a work trade with local seed company Sow True Seed for some amazing heirloom seeds and planted them in the greenhouse at Asheville High School where they were lovingly (and organically!) tended and watered by the kids and teachers from the special education program. Our little babies have gotten big and are ready to find new homes! All of the seedlings were raised organically, but some were also grown from organic seed where noted. We have:

* Organic Cherry Sweetie Tomato
* Organic Cherokee Purple Tomato
* Pink Brandywine Tomato
* Arkansas Traveler Tomato
* Organic Marketmore Cucs
* Lemon Cucs
* New Mexican Big Jim Mild Hot Pepper
* Golden California Wonder Sweet Pepper
* Italian and Genovese Basil

All of these seedlings are $3 each or 2/$5. The basil is the same price for a 4-pack of plants!

In addition to these fabulous and yummy veggie starts, First Step Farm in Candler will be coming by ear-lie in the morning to drop off a great selection of flowers. They will have annuals and perennials in flats, pots and hanging baskets. Prices will vary on these.

We will be up there from 9-4 in front of the Vance Marquee on Sulphur Springs Rd. Come by and see us!
