Course Description

Start vegetables from seed in this hands-on workshop. Discover techniques and benefits of growing your vegetables from seed started indoors. Explore lighting, soil types, containers, sowing schedules, and plant selection with a gardening expert. Avoid common pitfalls and improve seed starting success. Get a tray of seeds started in class that you can take home with you.

In the January class, scheduled in conjunction with our free Seed Swap, you’ll start cool-season veggies such as leafy greens and more, or others you can grow in your window sill. In the February class, you’ll start tomatoes and peppers so they are ready to harden off and plant in the garden by May.

Join us for a full day of spectacular programming!
