to support and grow a food system in Maricopa County that thrives

Maricopa County Food System Coalition Forum is a social network

Hi I'm interested in growing saffron in Phoenix.  Does anyone have any hands on experience with this precious crop.  I've been in touch with Pam Perry so I do have a good start and I'd be interested in reaching out to others.

Welcome. The next meeting of the Food Coalition is Sept 28th starting at 9 am. It will be held at St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance, University of Phoenix Building Community Room, 2831 N 31st Ave, Phoenix 85009. Please come join us.

I'll be in billings mt for a funeral. Keep me posted please.

Pam is the local expert on this one - the Herb Association will have saffron bulbs for sale this fall and it's Pam bringing them in.  The hardest part of them is keeping track of where you planted it when it's dormant so you don't accidentally dig them up...  :)


Thank you. So far I have 3 spaces at the DBG community garden and some in my raised planter beds at home. I've planted about 200 corms and I hope they all grow.
