Food Love Project Plant Sale!

Spring has sprung, which means it’s plant sale time again!  Sierra Harvest’s educational farm, The Food Love Project will be selling certified organic, locally adapted plant starts in the coming weeks in a series of on-farm plant sales.  We’ll even have  a special hands-on gift making event during Mother’s Day Weekend! We are located at the Burton Homestead, 16200 Lake Vera Purdon in Nevada City, just a few minutes from downtown Nevada City.

We’ll have a variety of tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, greens, strawberries, herbs and even peanuts all ready to plant in your garden!  All proceeds go to supporting farm to school education in our local community.
