An Essential Step to Growing a Great Garden
Perhaps you want to stop buying your tomato starts from a nursery, or perhaps the nursery doesn’t offer the varieties that you want to plant. Maybe you already grow veggies from seed but can’t seem to get your starts looking like the ones at the garden centres.
Whether you’re an aspiring gardener or have the greenest thumb in your neighborhood, this class will help you crack the code on how to produce strong, healthy starts for your garden. We will cover the basics of starting your own vegetables from seed:
-When to sow which varieties of vegetables
-What mediums to use for sowing the seeds
-What steps to take once they have germinated
-And lots more.
This class will include demos, handouts, and plenty of time for discussion & questions.
Tamiae Squibb, a graduate of the Linnaea Ecological Garden Program (and various other institutions) returned to Vancouver last year after several years on Cortes Island, BC. After honing her skills as a producer -both on land and in the kitchen- she is excited to share her enthusiasm for building soil, growing food, and feeding bodies with anyone looking to do the same. Since settling back into the city she has been enjoying offering workshops on baking sourdough bread and gardening. When she isn’t teaching, baking bread, or selling fermented foods out of her garage, she can be found happily tending her home garden in east Vancouver.
