March weather is fickle. Shorts weather on Monday and a blizzard Tuesday. While you may not be able to count on warm weather yet, you can still prepare now for an amazing late spring and summer garden by starting your garden by seed indoors.
Join Master Gardeners Barabara Masoner and Joe Fleenor for an informative, hands-on seed-starting workshop. Barbara and Joe will teach you both the traditional method as well as soil block method for starting seedlings and discuss the best vegetables to start indoors and the best to sow directly outdoors. Participants will learn how to start and care for their own vegetable and herb seedlings.
Joe Fleenor is a FROG (Front Range Organic Gardeners) member, handyman storyteller and longtime Front Range gardener, and Barbara Masoner is the co-founder and co-director of Grow Local Colorado and is longtime Front Range gardener.
This will be Grow Local Colorado’s 11th season of growing fresh produce for our neighbors lacking access to healthy food. Each year we grow around 4,000 to 5,000 pounds of vegetables, which are all donated to organizations that serve those in need. Our mission is to grow food, grow community and grow awareness. We welcome volunteers to help in our 12 gardens or to deliver to the produce to food pantries.
A limited number of scholarships are available for those requesting financial assistance. A portion of the class proceeds will go toward the Charles Hays World School’s new indoor grow center.
