You want to get growing now, don’t you? I know I do. So this Saturday I’ll kick things off with the first in my seven-class series at City People’s Garden Store in Seattle. I’ll discuss “Starting Your Earliest Edibles” and go into some detail on how to
get the garden beds ready, what vegetables can be started now, and how to get them growing vigorously.
Through the spring, and again in summer and into fall, this class series will take us through the seasons in our vegetable gardens, from building soil to
putting your produce on the holiday dinner table.
Here’s the lineup for “The Edible Year”:
Each class is one hour, and we often end it by walking through the nursery, choosing plants and supplies. If you’ve never been to City People’s Garden Store before, it’s a gem. Situated in the Madison Valley neighborhood of central Seattle, it is comprised of a colorful, enticing store, an attached greenhouse, and an outdoor yard chock full of interesting plant choices. It fits well into its neighborhood, which has diversions such as Cafe Flora and the Washington Park Arboretum.
The workshops are free, but please e-mail or call the store at (206) 324-0737 to pre-register.
