Seeds in the City began in Little Italy, San Diego, in 2008 as two tomato plants in a backyard that was completely shaded by a Loquat tree.
The taste of a fresh vine ripened tomato sparked a passion that grew from three raised beds to five, a chicken coop is now in the place of the original tomatoes and the greenhouse has sent the jacuzzi packing. Through trial and error as well as many a late night reading every book on gardening and farming that I could get my hands on I learned how to grow a majority of our fruits and vegetables as well as raise chickens and a soon to be rooftop beehive. In 2010, I completed the Master Composter course and with it we implemented a compost bin in the yard as well as a worm compost bin in the kitchen.
Today, we strive to spread a little of the joy we have found growing and raising our own food to you. In addition to being a boutique nursery offering many different sustainably grown, non-gm, heirloom seedlings, Seeds in the City also offers consultation services for those looking to grow their own produce, raise chickens, start aquaponics and dabble in backyard beekeeping. We look forward to helping you grow!
