ABOUT SEMILLAS COOP
Semillas Coop was created in 2019 by 6 urban farmers: Gabi from Buenezas, Juan + Patty from Go Green Now Gardens, Mike from Jaja Finca, Sam from Farm the Yard FL, and Diana from Magic City Gardens.
Although the partnership only last one short growing season, Sam and Diana decided to continue working together to bring fresh veggies and baby plants to the community. We decided to funnel our energy into Semillas Coop instead of focusing on our own businesses, with the hope that in the future we will get the opportunity to collaborate with more local growers and makers.
We work with volunteers who come help us weed, prep beds, transplant seedlings, start seeds, and even pack CSA boxes.
Diana is a Miami-native, who after getting a Masters in Sustainable Development, decided that the most sustainable thing to do, was to grow food for and with her local community. Diana founded Magic City Gardens in 2018, and is a founding member of Semillas Coop.
Sam has been working in the agricultural scene for over 8 years now. He's helped design and create gardens for schools and private homes all over the tri-county area, and is an expert in food forests. He has been a farm hand at big and small farms alike since his college days. Sam founded Farm the Yard FL in 2014, and is a founding member of Semillas Coop.
