Urban Farming 101: Seed Starting Indoors with Anna Poaster

Starting seeds indoors is an incredibly exciting and rewarding process: you can pick the exact exotic, funky, or heirloom variety that you've been ogling in the seed catalogs and it can result in healthier and hardier plants than the starts you might buy at your local garden store. However, many gardeners are scared away, thinking they need greenhouses or grow lights or the ultimate green thumb to successfully seed start. We say that's hogwash! Come learn about the ins and outs of the seed starting process, start some seeds to take home, and take your garden knowledge to the next level. Four 30 minute demos at 12, 1, 2, and 3pm.

Free, no registration necessary.
