This is an amazing and fun sale for those of us who are crazy about plants. This will be Peaceful Belly’s seventh annual Plant Sale.

Boise: May 7-8 and 14-15, from 9 am – 5 pm at Peaceful Belly Farm on 14055 N. Broken Horn Road, in the Dry Creek Valley

Here’s what Josie says about the sale:

We raise over 170 types of tomatoes from seed, 80 types of peppers, squash, melons, eggplants, herbs, and so much more. It seems a little crazy but we want the folks in our community to understand the massive diversity in the agricultural plant world. Commercial agriculture causes many plant species to become extinct by not growing them for consumers. It is easier for farmers to grow just a few varieties of tomatoes for commercial sale but this practice causes major damage to the preservation of seeds and the diversification of plant species. It is up to small farms and home gardens to save these precious jewels for the future. Every time you grow an heirloom plant and save the seeds, you are doing your part to help preserve seeds for the future.
