Start Your Garden from Seed, Workshop with Nan Sterman, March 4, 2012
Seeds are magical little things, pieces of dried out "wood" that, when watered, suddenly come alive to make round purple eggplants, sweet red tomatoes, even savory basil.
Starting from seed allows gardeners to try varieties nurseries just don't sell.
This workshop focuses on seed starting basics. We begin with how to read seed packages and which seeds to start in which seasons.
We talk about the best containers for starting seeds (we use the exclusive, reusable Rootrainer Growing System) and the best seed starting soils, too.
Then, we literally dig in and get planting.
We cover everything a hoping-for-green-thumb needs to raise a summer full of vegetables, fruits, and herbs, including seed starting secrets Nan's developed from years of starting her own garden from seed and testing seeds for Organic Gardening Magazine.
For the price of a trip to the supermarket, you'll go home with hundreds of dollars worth of seeded plants that will produce several hundred dollars more worth of vegetables. You'll also gain the knowledge to produce that same value every year.
If you've dreamed of starting seeds, or struggled with seeds in the past, this workshop is for you!
PLEASE NOTE: This small, hands-on workshop is limited to 15 people only. Please reserve your spot before all the spaces fill.

||This says it is not kid friendly. However, I have a well behaved 7 year old daughter that enjoys working in the garden with me and I wondered if it would be ok to bring her to this class? I have taken her with me to Farmer Bill's classes at City Nursery and she has done fine. |
||I'm sorry but this particular workshop is very much adult focused. Teenagers are fine but it isn't appropriate for a 7 year old. If you have a group of children who would like to do seed starting, please let Nan know. If there were a demand for it, she would consider doing a special children's class. |
