Mother’s Day On The Way

Mother’s Day is coming up and Urban Tilth has partnered with a local Richmond artist Francisco “Pops” Rojas ( @pac_pops ) who will demonstrate how to make your own DIY gift card for Mother’s Day! We are adding a surprise twist by using multicoloured marigold seeds that were harvested, dried and collected from the North Richmond Farm to add to each card. Recycled paper is a sustainable way to reuse scrap pieces of paper instead of buying more from the store. What’s so special about these cards is that when you attend this event, you can easily plant them in the soil in the early Summer and grow your own marigolds by mid-fall! We looking to have 7-10 participants for this event, if you would like to register please visit the volunteer events page on
