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.
We’ve moved several times since our initial inception and added two new members to our family. These new additions have re-calibrated my focus to include herbal medicine. By growing our own medicinal herbs I’m able to create pure and clean treatments for all members of our family. I strive to spread a little of the joy I have found growing and raising our own food with you.
We look forward to helping you grow!
