A workshop for McGill faculty, staff and students
How does your garden grow? A hands-on workshop on starting vegetable plants from seed. Monday, March 18th 2013. Cost $15. Workshop A 11:30-12:30 and Workshop B 12:30-1:30 Location MS-74 (lower level of the McLennan Library Building on the corner of Sherbrooke). Maybe our parents, grand-parents or great-grand parents were expert vegetable gardeners, but for most of us, the idiosyncrasies of growing vegetables from seed elude us. Rather, we resign ourselves to forking over a wad of cash to buy greenhouse-grown seedlings for our garden. Or we just keep shopping at the grocery store. This hands-on workshop organized by Greening Indoor McGill Initiative (GIMI) is designed for beginners and intermediate gardeners alike, whether for just a couple pots on the balcony, or a full-fledged garden in your yard or community garden. GIMI’s favourite Plant Science MSc student Christie Lovat will teach you the ins-and-outs of starting vegetables from seed, showing you the best ways to start a variety of different seed types indoors in order to get garden-center quality plants by planting time in May. In addition to helpful veggie-knowledge and trouble-shooting advice, participants will come away with a six-pack tray of biodegradable pots, Miracle-Gro soil and an heirloom seed packet each of standard tomato, cherry tomato, melon, snap bean, and carrots.
Space is limited to 40 participants. To register, contact Heidi Hoernig at Heidi (dot) hoernig (at) mcgill (dot) ca. Please indicate which workshop you would like to attend. Directions to the workshop room will be provided with registration confirmation.
Greening Indoor McGill Initiative is a volunteer-run, faculty, staff and student McGill project.
