Welcome to Home Grown Food

We are an all-volunteer group dedicated to supporting the efforts of Northern Colorado’s backyard and community food gardeners through workshops, the seed-swap, the starter-barter, and by promoting local food growing events.

2015 Starter Barter and Plant Sale

11 a.m. to 2:00 p.m
Saturday, May 2, 2015
Avogadro’s Restaurant,
605 S. Mason St, Fort Collins

Veggie, fruit, flower, and herb starts will be available for sale, barter and trade.

In the interest of keeping backyard food-growing affordable, bring your extra starts to sell or trade with other gardeners! Or just come and buy!

  • Trade or sell your starts. Gardeners are free to set their own prices but the event is meant to keep food gardening affordable, so Home Grown Food suggests $1 for 2-inch pots and up to $3 for larger plants.
  • Larimer County Master Gardeners will be available, along with veteran suburban gardeners, to answer your gardening questions.
  • Seed will also be available for purchase.

Home Grown Food is an all-volunteer group dedicated to supporting the efforts of Northern Colorado’s backyard and community food gardeners through workshops, seed-swap and starter-bartering events and by helping to publicize other local food events.
