Seeds to Starts Workshop

The dates are set for our 2017 Spring Seeds to Starts workshops!

Seeds to Starts plant

Join us for one or both parts of our workshop to learn how to start growing your own vegetables from seed AND help Austinites in need get access to nutritious affordable food. At these hands-on workshops, participants learn how to prepare soil for seeds, how to plant seeds, and how to transfer seedlings into starter pots. GCP uses the starter plants produced in these workshops in our gardens.
