Grow Your Own Produce: Indoor Seed-Starting, Early Plantings and Perennial Crops

In March, it is time to begin planting seeds both outdoors and indoors.  This session will focus on those early plantings and the varieties that perform best for our climate.  Perennial vegetables can be transplanted at this time.  Since many perennial vegetables are new to gardeners, Marisha will share about growing and cooking some of her favorite types.  Seed catalogs and other resources will be available as references for each participant to make a personalized planting calendar.

Classes are $25 per class or $100 for 5 classes.  A 20% discount is available to People's Member-Owners, please email Marisha ( directly with your Member-Owner number to receive the discount.
