ECO: Propagation and Potting Help



Botanical Community Development Initiatives has received a generous donation of plug trays filled with plants. Some of the plants are destined for their farm’s weekly plant sale which benefits programs at B.C.D.I, while others will be grown out on the farm and put into CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) boxes for sale or produce boxes for families negatively affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

Volunteers will be helping to pot or plant donations of various herbs, vegetables, and flowers into larger pots or directly in the ground. There are also passionflower vines and rosemary to be rooted out.
