Vegetables we will be planting at Wickedfood Earth over the next few weeks include Artichoke, Asparagus, Beetroot, Cabbage, Carrot, Lettuce, Onion, Parsnip, Radish, Swiss chard, Spinach and Turnip:

For some unusual and interesting seeds with a difference, see:

  • Livingseeds – A large selection of locally grown heirloom and open pollinated vegetable seed; and
  • Sought after seedlings – Open pollinating heritage/heirloom varieties that are grown to maintain the longevity of vegetables which have been around for hundreds of years, ensuring quality and exceptional taste.

Wickedfood Earth® is a community upliftment, self-sustainable lifestyle project being developed on a 38 hectare site in the Hartbeesfontein Conservancy, located within the Magalies Meander Tourism area. We are developing a self-sustaining lifestyle showcase subscribing to the ethos of “Responsible use of sustainable resources“.
