The USF Seed Library and Urban Agriculture department have been asked to participate in San Francisco’s first ever Urban Ag Academy, to be held at the County Fair Building, in Golden Gate Park near Ninth and Lincoln. The seed swap is just one of many activities that will be taking place during the free Urban Ag Academy, happening from 11:30 AM to 5 PM, an event which has been organized by the City of San Francisco. Seed librarians Carol Spector and Debbie Benrubi will be bringing the seed library to demo, and hosting a seed swap from 11:30 to 12:30.
We will have several tables available for sharing seeds. If you’re interested in growing vegetables and herbs from seed, or would like to share the seeds from plants you grew, please join us! We’ll supply envelopes and some seeds; you bring a desire to grow things, and seeds if you have some to swap.
In addition to the seed swap, the Urban Ag Academy will feature demonstration classes on gardening, workshops on fermenting and canning food, tips to being a successful grower in San Francisco, etc. The University of San Francisco Urban Agriculture Minor is proud to be one of the event co-sponsors.
