Lunch & Learn: Start your Fall Vegetable Garden from Seed (webinar)

August 14 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Grow your lettuce, kale, collards, broccoli, Asian green and other fall veggie transplants using a milk jug!

September is when we plant our fall vegetable garden and August is when you start seeds to grow your own transplants. It is fun, rewarding, and fabulous garden skill to grow your plants from seed.

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.

You need 6 varieties of seed. This could be two types of lettuce, one type of broccoli, one type of kale, one type of collard, one type of Asian green, and one type of cabbage.  It is your fall garden. Pick out what looks good even if it is 6 types of lettuce.
