Show Notes

Community gardener Sonya Harris tells us how we can get our hands on her special seeds and Bevin shares his Top 5 Peppers! 

Sonya Harris is a gardener, seed saver, founder of the Bullock Garden Project in Glassboro, NJ and all-around groovy lady! We have an opportunity to chat with Sonya about her favorite tomatoes, a fun gardening surprise and some of the interesting seeds she’s growing this year. We also learn about her collaboration with Ujamaa Seeds, a new seed company focused on diversity and inclusion. Ujamaa is a Swahili word that means 'extended family'.

 You can learn more about Sonya’s work at and connect with Sonya online at @NJGardenTeacher across all socials.
