African Potato Mint
Also known as Kaffir Potato. This mint relative is grown for its potato-like tuber. These tubers can get very large, up to 4 lbs., are very high in protein, carbohydrate, iron and calcium. A so called “lost crop” of Africa that in fact is of immense value today! Thrives in hot and fairly dry conditions. Requires 6 months of warm to hot growing conditions to yield mature tubers.

Three OMRI #Organic plants will be available for drawing at tomorrow's event (will tag event when on computer). Original plant was from Timothy Noyes. Sharing the plant and will keep propagating it for EPP. Laura Halmuth this was the plant I brought for your SEWParty.

SUMMER/Fall Interns needed! Contact edibleplantproject at gmail dot com to inquire. We are 100% volunteer run. No paid positions are available at this time. However, it is a great resume and experience booster.

Help us by volunteering at our Nursery!
We have regular work parties at our nursery where we start new plants, propagate, transplant, weed and tend to existing plants. You’ll learn lots about growing and caring for edible plants and trees in this climate. Those with horticultural interests, experience and expertise are especially welcome. We accept community service volunteers for college and high school.
For every 2 hours of volunteering you’ll receive one tree or plant of your choice!

Video! Volunteers learn how to pot and transplant plants
