Re: “Seed Swap & Garden Workshops

Don't miss this fun community event! The swap is noon-3pm with workshops on Garden Planning with Lisa Coven at 1pm and Seed Starting For Less with Ron Krupp at 2:30pm.

A few tips:
WHAT TO BRING: Your own saved seeds, extra purchased seeds, seeds brought back from another region or country. Please label with variety and date harvested. (No GMO seeds please.) If you don’t have seeds to share, consider bringing another garden-related item to swap (a garden book, extra tools, garden preserves, a snack). Donations are also welcome for the Community Teaching Garden scholarship fund.
HOW IT WORKS: All the seeds will be sorted into categories on tables. Participants add their seeds and select the seeds they want, putting them into provided envelopes. There will be a separate area for saved and special seeds (heirlooms, small quantities, unusual varieties, etc.) so that participants can talk to each other about the seed origins. There will also be extra seeds donated by High Mowing Seeds and Gardener’s Supply, so everyone will have seeds to bring home.

WORKSHOPS:
1pm: GARDEN PLANNING FOR COMPANION AND SUCCESSION PLANTING with Lisa Coven - This fun and interactive seminar will explore the different reasons for companion planting and how to plan for succession planting so you can harvest short-growing crops all seasons long. Participants are encouraged to bring a list of plants they would like to grow this season. At the end of the session, each gardener will leave with a map to help them plan and manager their garden.
2:30pm: SEED STARTING FOR LESS with Ron Krupp - This hands-on workshop will include a discussion on germination mixes, potting soils, seed starting dates, grow lights vs. sun light, containers, the use of cold-frames, greenhouses and more. Please bring your garden questions.
