Spring is here! It is time to plan your garden and start planting SEEDS! Come to this April workshop to learn how to get your garden started off on the right foot! We will begin by discussing organic gardening planning, planting, spacing, soil amendments, and troubleshoot your gardening questions. This will be followed by an in-depth, hands-on demonstration on how to start your own seeds, care for seedlings, and when you can safely plant them out into your garden. Participants will take home the seeds they have started. Feel free to bring seeds you already have that you want to start with the group.
