Traditional Workshop: In-Person at the Farm

Seed Starting for Your Organic Garden

2023 Dates to be Announced

We have been actively perfecting seed-starting for over 15 years, and I have come to realize that most of what home gardeners are told isn't complete and actually leads to failure or weak, unsatisfying seedlings...

In this workshop, we'll demonstrate and go over how to start your own seeds professionally and successfully. You'll have strong and vibrant seedlings ready to grow and produce well all season long!

We are also doing this organically and biodynamically - using herbal teas to prevent damping off, using organic nutrients, etc.

For anyone planning a big garden, starting your own strong and healthy seedlings is imperative! Workshop takes place at Midsummer Farm. I start seeds basically throughout the year.... but most seeds are started January through April of each year. So we plan our in-person seed starting workshops in the late winter and early spring.

On-line Version

Seed Starting for Your Organic Garden Workshop

This online version of our Seed Starting Workshop will cover all the same great info that is covered during the in-person workshops we have been giving at our farm for 10 years. 

We'll be delving into all the tips and tricks we've learned as we have been perfecting seed starting. Be aware that many of the accepted practices of seed starting are quite misleading and don't actually lead to robust and healthy seedlings. 

After taking this workshop, you be able to grow vibrant and strong seedlings that will produce great plants. We practice strict organic methods, and we'll talk about products we use as well as teas and products we make for our seedlings. We will also cover using biodynamic principles in your seed starting protocol. 

For anyone planning a big garden, starting your own strong and healthy seedlings is imperative!
