Save the Earth Foundation (STE) recently announced its funding of a community nursery managed by Nick Routledge at Canticle Farms in Oakland CA, a non-profit urban farming and gardening initiative. The seed money granted by STE will go towards the purchase of public domain, open-pollinated, non-hybrid, non-GMO seed, soil, containers and irrigation equipment to raise seedlings for distribution in East Bay neighborhoods along with providing training to grow food. The goal is to supply fresh, high-quality produce to urban neighborhoods that are typically deprived of good food by supporting the installation of home-based kitchen gardens.
