Presented with Earth Care (Please RSVP for this class). By starting seeds indoors in early spring, you not only get a head-start on your year's food production by protecting your crops from Santa Fe’s finicky spring climate, but you also get more time with your hands in the dirt.
In this class we will discuss the basics of making your own soil mix for indoor seed starting, requirements for bountiful seed germination, basic indoor and outdoors seedling care, and season extension tricks for outdoor growing. By the last frost date, your garden is ready to bloom and grow.
