? Seed starting at home – volunteering opportunities

Start your seeds indoors

Late March is a great time to start both leafy greens and fruiting vegetables ahead of time. For those of you who want to try your hand at starting seeds at home this year, check out this handy guide and video for tips! We also will be covering seed starting at our workshop next weekend. Starting your own seeds gives you access to all sorts of interesting varieties of vegetables, herbs, fruit and flowers that you might have a hard time finding in stores.

Volunteering opportunities

This year we are launching a weekly ‘Saturdays in the Greenhouse’ program during the Grand Potager Urban Agriculture month of May! On our volunteer page there is a form to fill out to get on our volunteering list, and scheduling program to book a day and a time you would like to come in. It’s a great way to get your hands dirty and learn more about growing your own food!
