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, an interesting 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 www.bullockgardenproject.org and connect with Sonya online at @NJGardenTeacher across all socials.
You can find Ujamaa Seeds at https://ujamaaseeds.com/
