Prairie Ecosystems Management is handling the online orders for the Food Not Lawns Kansas City’s 2015 Sweet Potato Project.
The Kansas City Sweet Potato Project is action and education about the benefits of having a sweet potato patch instead of a lawn patch. Sweet potatoes are a beautiful, highly nutritious edible landscaping plant that is an environmentally sound replacement for unsustainable lawns.
Started in 2008 by the local Food Not Lawns collaborative, we offer organic sweet potato plants for sale and workshops covering:

Sweet potato slip propagation is weather dependent . Sweet potatoes are a tropical plant that suffers when the soil temperature is lower than 50° so we cannot set a firm delivery date though it is usually the first week of June.
Order sweet potato slips for delivery June 4th – 12th 2015
Pick up at Antioch Urban Growers 2727 NE 44th St Kansas City Mo 64117
Please leave your email and phone number on order form message box.
