Urban Growers Program – What we grow in Spring & Summer

We are very excited about our 2023 gardening season and want to share with our volunteers which veggies we will be planting to start the season.

The greenhouse will host some of our seedlings; pok choy, kale, collard greens, broccoli, cilantro, Swiss chard, and parsley will be ready to transplant outside early in the spring while tomatoes, peppers, and bush beans will move outside in May.

Most of the veggies listed here have a planting to harvest timeframe of 50-60 days. Lettuce seeds and peas will be planted directly outside starting in March and will keep producing to the end of spring. Swiss chard, kale, and collards will continue producing until winter.

Our community gardens will have a similar planting schedule to improve our productivity and delivery of food to local food programs.  Please check some interesting videos clips at the bottom of this page.
