Ready to work in your garden this year, but not sure where to start?  Seeds are the very best way to get to know plants!  Even first time gardeners can find success in the garden with the right seeds. Ellen and Andy have selected seed varieties that are suited to our local growing conditions, so that you can grow and harvest your own veggies and flowers.  Participants will be provided with 8 types of seeds, from quick harvest radishes, to flowering zinnias and cosmos to cut and gift to friends and neighbors.  All experience levels are welcome in this class.  We cover the basics, will provide everything you need to get started, and provide basic gardening information to help you grow your own.  You will also be better prepared when shopping those tempting seed displays that pop up everywhere in the spring!

All materials are included in the price and must be picked up at the Garden by March 12.  Materials include seeds, growing tray, potting media, labels, and crop specific information included in the kit. Free Garden admission (for registered class participant) is included when picking up class materials. Registration closes Thursday (midnight) prior to class.

Included seeds: Zinnia, Cosmos, Pepper, Cilantro, Radish, Green beans, Kale, Swiss chard

A Zoom link for class participants will be emailed out by noon on Friday before class. There is no onsite option for this class.
