With some warmer temperatures and snow melting, it's time to think Spring! Spring Ledge Farm will be holding their first seed sowing workshop on March 28th between 10am and 2pm. This will be the third year of this very popular program where you can sow your own seed tray using their seeds, their soil, advice and even their greenhouse space to grow them for a month. Cost for the workshop is $18. You will take home a seed tray with 100 plants of spring hope and promise. Alternatively, for $36, they will grow your seed tray for five weeks, and you can pick it up in the beginning of May. There is no limit on the number of seed trays you sow. The results of a seed tray grown in a greenhouse, with full light, regular watering, fertilizer and daily attention are excellent. Estimated total time needed to pick out seeds and sow the trays to be about 30 minutes. Hope to see you there!
