Gardening Basics: Seed-Starting Party
Taught by Brooklyn Brainery
Brooklyn Brainery hosts affordable classes at our two locations in Brooklyn (190 Underhill Ave in Prospect Heights and 1110 8th Ave in Park Slope), as well as additional events around the borough. We hosted our first classes in 2010 and look forward to hosting many more for years to come.
We've got a new monthly thing going on - $7 Sundays (yes, they're actually $5, but "Five Dollar Sundays" doesn't have that alliteration!). Super cheap drop-in classes where you get to hang out with a ton of neat people while learning the very basics of something, inspired by our Kimchi Party. This time around it's seed sprouting!
Since spring really is just around the corner, and so is that itch to grow little tiny green things on our windowsills.
March's $7 Sunday party will be a crash course in seed germination. No need to wait until the weather warms - get your seeds started indoors so your vegetable garden can get a jump start on Spring!
Bring your own seeds or grab some of ours and we'll show you how to make them come alive before you stick them in the soil. We'll cover the factors that make seeds come out of dormancy and give you some tips for helping them stay alive once they sprout.
We'll also be doing a seed swap! Bring some of your favorite varieties of seeds to trade with every one else (especially those that can grow in containers) and double your sprouting fun.
This class is drop-in style - feel free to show up any time between 1 and 5 PM. You'll need to pre-register, though, because there are only a limited number of spots this time around!
This class, like alllll of the others, happens at 515 Court St in Brooklyn, at the corner of W 9th and Court.
