Dig It! Seed-Starting for Urban Gardeners
Join Master Gardener Brie Callahan of Altgeld Sawyer Corner Farm to green up your thumbs for the growing season. She'll cover the benefits of starting your own plants from organic seed, money-saving DIY techniques, seasonal planning, indoor cultivation, the hardening-off process, and garden transplanting.
Dabblers will head home with a few hardy kale seedlings and plenty of pointers. Bring a pen and pad to take notes.
The Altgeld Sawyer Corner farm is a volunteer-run community garden which provides fresh produce to neighboring food pantries and an educational and meet-up space for the Logan Square community. You can read more about them on their website: http://www.cornerfarm.org.
Homestead Logan Square, an ongoing educational workshop series, is designed to empower you to take ownership of your urban landscape with workshops ranging from fermentation, canning, basic herbalism, and more. HLS is a collaboration between neighboring Logan Square Co-ops Five Point Holistic Health and Dill Pickle Food Co-op. Visit https://www.facebook.com/homesteadlogansquare for more information.
