Seed Starting Demo at Greensgrow Farms

March 3 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

Registration Required. Do you want to grow varieties that you can never find in 6 packs? Grow them yourself with our help! Greensgrow’s Executive Director and former farmer Ryan will demonstrate how to start a tray of seeds and discuss what to choose for your location, planning and planting times, what kind of soil to use and why, soil temperature and watering for success. She 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, seasonal plantings, and how to care for your seedlings in any home garden setting. 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. It can get hot in the greenhouse, please bring a hat, sunscreen, and water.

This is a free instructional demonstration at Greensgrow Farms, if it is full or you cannot make this time there is another opportunity at Greensgrow West on February 23, sign up here. If you would like to take a more in depth, hands-on workshop, check out the workshop on March 17 at Greensgrow Farms here.

Please note: There are limited seats available. Because this is a free demo you will be able to sign up for one seat per person.
