About The Event
If you're concerned about the rising cost of food and want to find an economical solution, learning to start your own vegetable seeds is a great first step! Instead of buying pre-started seedlings at the garden center, why not grow your own? Whether you are a beginner gardener or simply want more plant diversity, this workshop will give you the information and tools you need for a successful start to spring! You'll learn everything you need to know to start your own veggies from seed, including seed storage and viability, optimum germination requirements, seed-starting mix recipes, specific seed-sowing dates for Calgary, and so much more! We'll discuss which plants need to be started indoors (and when) for our Calgary climate, and which seeds are happiest planted directly into your garden. And if you'd like to give soil-blocking a try, come prepared to get your hands dirty! Let's get growing!
