Workshop: Starting from Seed
May 14, 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm$15
It is economical to start your own seeds for herbs and for growing your own food. We will look at the different times and ways to start seeds and what different seeds need to germinate well. We will talk about choosing seeds for extending your vegetable growing season and for growing winter storage vegetables. The gardening component of this workshop will involve seeding herbs, flowers and ground covers into our edible garden and, weather permitting, we will plant out some fruit bushes.
Instructor: Cathy Hooper, Master Gardener and Permaculture Designer
This workshop is part of the Edible Landscaping Workshop Series.
Each workshop involves both a lesson and hands-on experience in a garden. We will all work together to prepare, plant and maintain the garden at the Environment Centre. This allows participants time to ask questions about the process and time to get to know each other and the land as well as our plants and their needs. Teachings are in the permaculture style which incorporates ideas of organic, small scale, intensive, holistic and sustainable living and gardening.
