Event details

Whether you’ve been gardening for awhile or are just getting started, this DIY series is for you. This three-part series kicks off with seed starting. In this session, create a mini greenhouse and seed-starting pots using common household materials destined for the landfill. Then get your hands dirty making a soil mix perfect for starting pollinator-friendly seeds in the greenhouses and pots. Participants will also learn a bit about planting to benefit pollinators. All materials are provided, including seeds.
