Starting seeds indoors
In this months workshop we will focus on garden design and crop planning. Participants are asked to bring pictures and/or drawings of their current/future growing space. We will begin the day with an overview of crop rotation, site assessment, and infrastructure needs.
After discussing various aspects of creating a garden space we will dive into our planning portion. This second hour will see participants break off and work on their particular growing space. Each person will have the opportunity to work with Hanna one on one to focus in on what kind of a garden they want and how to make it happen.
To finish the day off we will learn about planting schedules, successive planting, and direct seeding versus starting seeds indoors. We will also briefly discuss the starting seeds indoors, suitable species, and how we can begin to incorporate this into the garden, even at the early stages of March.
By the end of this months workshop attendees should have:
The confidence to use the tools you have learned to create your own growing space with a 3 year crop rotation.
A better understanding of how build and maintain your growing space.
The beginnings of learning to start your own seeds indoors.
This months 3 hour workshop will focus primarily on designing your garden space and crop plan for a 3 year rotation.
