  • Urban Roots 1316 Madison Ave SE Grand Rapids United States (map)

This year, Urban Roots and Well House are joining plant sale forces to supply Grand Rapids growers with all the plants, seeds, and other materials they need to have a thriving garden! All proceeds from the plant sale will go towards supporting the Well House & Urban Roots apprenticeship program where members of the Well House community will receive employment and job skills training on the Urban Roots Community Farm.

Plants that will be available: tomatoes (10 varieties), peppers (8 varieties), eggplant, parsley, okra, swiss chard, stevia, bok choy, broccoli, kale, cabbage, collard greens, mustard greens, calendula, nasturtium, lettuce, turnip, spinach, cilantro, cucumber, zucchini, melon, winter squash, pumpkins, and more! We will also have a wide variety of seeds available.

Also for sale: raised beds, barrel planters, and soil amendments (compost and aged horse manure). Cash, credit/debit, checks, EBT/Bridge Card/SNAP all accepted!
