Topeka Common Ground makes a point of ensuring community gardens in Topeka have the seedlings they need for the goals of their gardens. Working with and through local partners we make many gardens a reality. We distribute seed potatoes and cole crops, such as: cabbage and broccoli seedlings in the early spring; tomato and pepper plants in early May and sweet potato slips in June.  We have also had three successful annual Free Seed Fairs to distribute seeds to non-commercial growers and awarded three Mini-Grants to deserving community gardens. Come grow with us!

Shawnee County Extension Master Gardeners and Topeka and Shawnee County Parks and Recreation are our most generous partners.

If you have a community garden and don’t receive seedlings and services from Topeka Common Ground, please contact us to get on our list: There is no membership requirement and all services are free for community gardens.
