ZOOM VIRTUAL CLASS: Seed Starting 101

  • Wednesday, April 1, 2020, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

We can't offer this class in-person due to coronavirus concerns, so we're moving it online and offering it through ZOOM. After you register, you'll get a link to the online class.

Grow everything from artichokes to zucchini from seed at home. Save money and enjoy the miraculous process of seed germination and plant growth in your home to get you through these last weeks of winter and get your garden started early. We’ll cover techniques such as cold stratification and scarification as well as simple recipes for making your own potting and fertilizer mixes to save even more money. We’ll talk about tools such as grow lights and heat mats and soil blocks.

Instructor Jennie Cramer is our Horticulture Program Manager and coordinates our Master Gardener Volunteer  Program. She is a former conservation biologist with a passion for organic gardening, regenerative agriculture, natural history and botanical education. She is especially smitten with the intricacies of seeds.
