Lunch & Learn: Grow your Summer Vegetables from Seed (Webinar)

March 5 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join Stephanie, our Executive Director, horticulturist, and long-time seed enthusiast for a live hands-on demonstration of how to start your own seeds using a milk jug. Students will learn how to convert their own 1-gallon clear milk or water jug into a greenhouse over Zoom (where else?!). She will walk you through the steps and along the way, we will add soil, seeds, and water. The final portion of the class, Stephanie will go over what you should do with your seedlings once they have germinated including a transplanting demo as well as basic tips for growing your vegetables successfully.
