seed startingSaturday, March 2nd and Thursday, March 7th at 1:00 pm we will offer a seed starting workshop covering the basics of seed starting and raising transplants  to a size ready to set out in the garden. There are a lot of options available for different ways of seed starting and I will be sharing several of them including soil blocks, plug trays, open flat seeding etc. As the seed, we are miracles of God’s grace when we accept Christ as our Lord and Savior and we begin growing in Him. We plant seeds in other people’s lives all the time…are we sowing good seed or weeds? Plan on this being a 3-4 hour workshop as there is a lot of material to cover and we will do some hands-on seed planting. We may get into some soil mixing and advantages and disadvantages of the soil-less versus soil based growing medias. Cost of this workshop is $35 per adult, $25 for anyone ages 5-16 and under five are free. The fee is due when we hold the workshop, but be sure and reserve a spot!

Workshop sizes are limited and reservations are available first come first served. If interested in attending one of these workshops, please call or e-mail to reserve your place. We will need your Name(s), preferred contact method (we will send out a reminder just prior to the class beginning) and how many will be attending with you.

Anyone 16 and under must be accompanied by and stay with a participating adult during the entire time on the farm. Children may not roam and play due to potential hazards.

If you bring 3 or more participating family members ages 5 and up we will give you a family discount.

Especially this time of year the weather can fluctuate very quickly and if needed we may reschedule or postpone classes due to adverse weather conditions. Nearly all the workshops will be held outdoors so be sure and come prepared and dress warm!
