Growing Ancestral Foods: Planting Seeds & Plants from the Asian diaspora

Highlights from our Growing Ancestral Foods seeding workshop held at the @asianbranchlibrary in Oakland Chinatown last April!

In the workshop we created a space for getting familiar with seeds and their growing requirements and gave away hundreds of plant babies. We’re looking forward to creating more workshops like this soon! 🌱
