Seed Starting Demo with Mary & Katelyn at Mariposa Food Co-Op

March 14, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

West Philly–Come out and meet Greensgrow and get your growing season off to a great start. This event takes place at Mariposa Food Co-Op down the street from Greensgrow West. Registration Required.

Do you want to grow varieties that you can never find in 6 packs? Grow them yourself with our help! Greensgrow founder Mary Seton Corboy and our Farmer Katelyn team up to help you get started this year. Limited seats.

They will demonstrate how to start a tray and discuss what to choose for your location, planning and planting timing, what kind of soil to use and why, soil temperature and watering for success. They will show you how to identify leaf sets and true leaves, when to transplant and how to harden off your starts. We’ll touch on nutrients, feeding, compost and vermiculture.

Everyone will get a handout of our planting calendar with recommended seed varieties for our region. If you need supplies, we will open Greensgrow West after the workshop for participants.

If you want a more hands on class, check out the workshop on March 21 at the farm.
