Event Details

March weather is fickle. Shorts weather on Monday and a blizzard Tuesday. While you may not be able to count on warm weather yet, you can still prepare now for an amazing late spring and summer garden by starting your garden by seed indoors. Whether you are a veteran Colorado gardner or just learning, this class will kick off your 2020 garden season with amazing instructors.

Barbara and Joe will teach you both the traditional method as well as soil block method for starting seedlings and discuss the best vegetables to start indoors and the best to sow directly outdoors. Participants will learn how to start and care for their own vegetable and herb seedlings.

Our Presenters

Joe Fleenor is a FROG (Front Range Organic Gardeners) member, handyman, storyteller and long-time Front Range gardener, and Barbara Masoner is the co-founder and co-director of Grow Local Colorado and is a long-time Front Range gardener.

A limited number of scholarships are available for those requesting financial assistance. A portion of the class proceeds will go toward the Charles Hays World School’s new indoor grow center.

This will be Grow Local Colorado’s 11th season of growing fresh produce for our neighbors lacking access to healthy food. Each year we grow around 4,000 to 5,000 pounds of vegetables, which are all donated to organizations that serve those in need. Our mission is to grow food, grow community and grow awareness. We welcome volunteers to help in our 12 gardens or to deliver the produce to food pantries.
