Winter Seed Sow Workshop at Verrill Farm

January 14 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

- Free

NEW DATE – January 14!

Don’t miss out! Save the date for our second annual Winter Seed Sow Workshop hosted by Verrill Farm (11 Wheeler Road, Concord) and register for your spot! Last year was a huge success! In this free workshop, led by Isabel Bailey of the Concord Pollinator Health Committee, we will learn how to sow seeds into milk jugs for easy, outdoor, over-wintering germination of native pollinator-supporting plants. To accommodate more people, demonstrations will be given at 1 PM, 2 PM, and 3 PM. After attending a demonstration, participants will prepare the growing containers and plant seeds. Plan to browse our resource table and learn about plans for a local Pollinator Pathway, too!

What to bring:
Clean, translucent, and empty milk gallon jugs if you have them. Remove the cap. (Additional jugs will be provided.)
Gardening gloves (if desired)
Scissors. (The workshop will provide some to share.)
Duct Tape (we will have rolls circulating, too.)
Cardboard box, tray, or other container to take home jugs (We have some to share.)
Description of area where you’ll transplant your seedlings (shade, sun, partial sun/shade)

Families welcome (please register total number of attendees!)

This workshop is hosted by Verrill Farm, and it is a collaboration between the Concord Pollinator Health Committee, the CCHS Green Team and the Concord Free Public Library. It is made possible by the generous support of the Friends of the Concord Free Public Library, a patron-supported non-profit organization.
