Spring is coming, folks, and the grand opening of Greensgrow Farms’ 2014 season is proof of that notion.

The urban farm promises shoppers fresh produce, plants, seeds and more in the spring, summer and fall. Greensgrow Farms plans to usher in spring a little early and open its gates on Saturday, March 1 with tons of seasonally appropriate farm-fresh goods to boot.

Visitors, browse discounted seeds for all of your early-spring planting needs.

After opening day, look forward to a slew of events slated for the upcoming months — including a charcuterie workshop, mushroom-growing workshop, volunteer opportunities and much more. Click here for the full calendar.

In addition to Greensgrow Farms’ upcoming spring opening, the farm recently announced that it will be expanding to West Philly with Greensgrow West, an urban farm built on the same ideals (and farm-fresh goods) as its Fishtown sibling.

The West Philly location is slated to open at 4912 Baltimore Avenue on Saturday, April 5.

How’s that for a breath of fresh air?
