Winter sowing is an easy, fun, and inexpensive way to get gardening – even in the middle of winter. It is an innovative method of propagating seeds in harmony with cycles of changing weather while requiring very little attention from gardeners. Some plants even prefer this method of propagation and germinate more readily than with traditional seed starting methods. Join us to learn how to make more plants than every before!

About the Make More Plants! Series: The world is abundant if we acknowledge the rhythms of nature and tap into how our favorite plants prefer to reproduce. This new class series will teach you the science and the skills to multiply the plants in your garden and share plants with family, friends, and neighbors. Each class will cover a different kind of propagation technique or will cover particular plants. From growing simple seeds to complex grafting, please join us to learn how to be part of the abundance of nature.

About the instructor: Mila Fournier is a garden designer and educator with two decades of design experience that started with guerilla gardening in Brooklyn and has moved her through designing some of the most sophisticated gardens in NYC. Once in Ithaca, Mila has worked as an educator, designer, and horticultural consultant, including managing Ithaca Children's Garden and helping large developers create beautiful landscapes and habitats to offset new construction.

We are committed to making all the Zoom classes in our Horticulture Program financially accessible, so have moved to a pay-what-you-can model. Our Zoom classes are valued at $20. If you can afford to pay $20 or more, you are helping make these classes available to folks who cannot afford the full price. All registrants, regardless of payment level, will receive a video recording of the class.

Class Recording: All classes are recorded so if you cannot make the live class, you can watch the video however only participants who have registered in advance for the class will have access to the video recording which is sent 48 hours later to registrants. Register and pay below.
