Seeds to Starts Workshops
You can register below for our 2023 spring Seeds to Starts (STS) workshops! Thanks to all of you that participated previously and we hope you can join us again this season. There are photos from last fall’s workshop below.
What is Seeds to Starts?
In these workshops, we’ll start many of the vegetables and herbs that we’ll plant in our gardens during our Dig-ins and you’ll be able to take some home. Join us for one or more of the workshops where you can help us help Austinites have better access to nutritious, affordable food and to learn how to start growing your own vegetables from seed. Participants will learn how to prepare soil for seeds, how to plant seeds, and how to transfer seedlings into starter pots. No gardening experience is needed.
Workshop Description and Registration:
We’ve setup our spring workshops a little differently this time – instead of 2 workshops as we’ve had for previous seasons, we’re going to have 3. Following is a description of each event and a link to register:
- Workshop 1 – Complete – Saturday July 29th, 9:00 AM to noon – we’ll start seeds in trays and flats.
- Workshop 2 – Complete – Saturday August 19th, 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM (note the later start time) – we’ll bump the starts from the 1st workshop to individual pots and start additional seeds in flats and trays.
- Workshop 3 – Complete – Saturday September 9th, 9:00 AM to noon – we’ll bump the starts from the 2nd workshop to individual pots.
Splitting the workshops up this way allows us to have transplants ready to go in the ground throughout our 5+ weeks of Dig-ins.
What to do on the Seeds to Starts Workshop day
Please be sure to check your e-mail both the night before and the morning of the workshop as it is possible that we may need to reschedule because of weather or other reasons. dress appropriately for the weather and bring water and gloves if you use them (we’ll have some gloves available.)
The workshops will be held at 1901 Matthews Lane in South Austin. Look for the bright blue and yellow house with a Green Corn Project banner on the tall chain link fence to the left. This is where you enter the property. You can park on the side streets in the surrounding neighborhood but be mindful of driveways and mailboxes.
