January in the Garden Calendar

Andrea Brueck ‘City Flower Wall’


What a year it has been. Seeds in the City have seen many changes and the one we are most excited about is more room! Our flock has expanded as well as our growing space. 2013 was a year of work and rebuilding but we are happy to say we are back and better then ever! With that, we launch our first post of the year with the ever-popular gardening calendar. Just because most of the country is covered in rain, snow and ice doesn’t mean we have to run for cover as well. This month there is plenty to do in and around town.

Happy New Year!
