2024 Farm Workshop: Utopian Seed Project – Tropical Perennials as Temperate Annuals

April 18 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

- $20
When: Thursday, April 18th
From: 1 pm to 3 pm
Location: SAHC Community Farm

Tropical perennials can be stunning plants offering a diverse diet for a changing climate. Learning how to grow and use them is a focus area for local non-profit, The Utopian Seed Project.

Join The Utopian Seed Project’s Chris Smith in a workshop that will cover the complete growing cycle, including storage and re-sprouting for a range of crops including: taro, arrowroot, yacon, turmeric, ginger, water chestnut, chayote, sweet potato, ube, and cassava. Note: the Utopian Seed Project is experimenting with open-field cultivation, not greenhouse production, so growing these crops is accessible to everyone. It’s planting time, so we’ll have plenty of show and tell to explore these crops!
