Seed Starting Workshop with Mary & Katelyn

March 21, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

$25.00

Registration Required. Do you want to grow varieties that you can never find in 6 packs? Want to eat pea shoots all day long? Grow them yourself with a little help from Greensgrow founder Mary Seton Corboy and our Farmer Katelyn. Our team of lady farmers is going to get your season started right in this hands-on workshop.

Everyone will learn as they plant their own trays of pea shoots and veggie starts to take home. (We’ll have tomato and peppers seed varieties on hand for you to choose from.)

We will demonstrate how make paper pots at home and how to start a seed tray. Learn 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. We’ll have seeds and seed starting supplies for sale in the greenhouse to get you started. Don’t forget – you’ll need a way to transport your seed trays home!
