CCGA Seed Starting Workshop Saturday March 4th, 2017

Begin the Garden Season with a Seed Starting Workshop

Tomato Seedlings for 2016 Vegetable Seedling Distribution

Tomato Seedlings for 2016 Vegetable Seedling Distribution

The CCGA Resources Committee is putting together “starter kits” of twenty different kinds of 2017 vegetable seeds* carefully chosen and purchased by us from reputable companies like Johnny’s Seeds. The Starter Kit also includes a booklet of directions, seed starting tray, and seed starting mix.

Nick Michaud of Westover Farms, an experienced horticulturalist, will talk about seed starting and give recommendations on growing each of the different vegetables included in the kit followed by a Q & A session. Additionally, participants will receive an array of donated seeds suitably qualified for Chicago Community Gardens.

This workshop is FREE and open to Chicago Community Gardeners.
(Your garden must be open and accessible to the public)

When: Saturday, March 4, 2017- 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Where: Chicago Center for Green Technology CCGT at 445 N. Sacramento Blvd., Chicago IL, 60612
