PLEASE DRESS IN LAYERS AS DEPENDING ON THE SUN THE GREENHOUSE CAN BE QUITE WARM OR QUITE COLD. Our second annual winter seed sowing workshops: Thursday, December 7, 1-2pm (postponed) OR Saturday, December 9, 11am-noon OR Thursday, December 14, 1-2pm Many of us are familiar with the more traditional methods of seed starting using trays, heat mats, and lights, but what if we told you there is an easier way to germinate native plant (and more!) seeds, while recycling plastic AND reducing the time and energy needed to grow as many plants as your little gardener’s heart desires? This Winter Sowing technique uses recycled transparent bottles to create small little greenhouses that you put outdoors and let Mother Nature do the stratifying for you! Our workshop takes you step-by-step through the technique, including tips based on our own experiences. You will leave with a completed greenhouse setup, ready to go outside! We'll go over other methods to sow native seeds as well, bring your questions too. Now is the perfect time to get your hands in a little dirt and get those seeds set up for success. Limited availability for each session, sign up today Age: adult Location: Blue Stem Natives' greenhouse (376 Washington St., REAR LOT) Cost: $30 per person The cost of the session includes 1 packet of seeds (our choice) but you are welcome to purchase more seeds on the day of the event.
