OUR ORGANIC SEEDLINGS
Diverse seedlings for a diverse community
With the intention of providing our Home Gardening program families with the possibility of growing culturally appropriate food, Valley Verde started cultivating ethnic seedlings in the community greenhouse, this effort is helping them to eat healthily, and giving them the possibility of teaching their children how to prepare their heritage food, passing down culture and love for healthy meals.
"When people are trying to eat better, going back to their culture's foods is the best way to commit to what they're doing, because the commitment is more than weight loss or heart health – it's also a commitment to their own roots."

Now, with commercial-quality ethnic seedlings available, we are ready to offer them to the broader community, so that you can explore and celebrate the diversity by growing, cooking and enjoying ethnic vegetable's flavors, colors and unique properties.
