Sowing Seeds: Starting a Successful Spring Garden
A seed is a powerful resource. In this workshop led by Laura Sasso, well discuss best practices for sowing, cultivating seedlings and transplanting. We will also explore strategies for planning and timing a successful warm season garden in this region. During the hands-on portion of the workshop we will sow seeds and work with seedlings, which you can take home and cultivate in your garden. Whether this is your first time to sow seeds or you have been stewarding your garden for years this will be a great way to spring into the growing season.  

Workshop Cost:
Cost of the workshop is $30 general admission (pre-registered) or $40 (at the door); $20 for Friends of the Farm & Garden members and current members of the Monterey Bay UC Master Gardeners (pre-registered) or $30 (at the door); $15 for beginning farmers and limited-income (pre-registered) or $20 (at the door). $5 for UCSC students.

Instructor:
Laura Sasso recently completed the advanced apprenticeship at CASFS with a focus on propagation and greenhouse management. During the 2018 apprenticeship program she facilitated multiple groups in learning about sowing, seedling management and greenhouse systems. She is particularly interested in the process of saving seeds as a way to steward a more resilient future. Prior to her time at CASFS she devoted herself to a range of landscape-base projects including urban farming and designing low water-use gardens.
