Kids Fall Seed Starting Workshop – This Saturday 9/9/23!


We are so excited to kick off our fall planting season with a workshop for kids of all ages! We think learning how to grow veggies from seed is an amazing life skill and SO rewarding when they make it to your dinner plate. Join us here at Gill’s for our Kids Fall Seed Starting Workshop at 10am this Saturday, September 9th!

Early September is time to start lots of different veggie seeds for a fall harvest, including broccoli, carrots, beans, corn, cucumbers, leafy greens, radishes and lots more! We’ll have stations set up for kids to fill their own compostable egg carton with up to 12 different seed starts. We’ll provide the seed starting soil, the seeds, and everything else you need + instructions for how to care for the seedlings once you get them home. Once they grow to about 2-3″, you can simply cut out each cell of the carton and plant it directly into the soil. Then with a little time and TLC, you’ll have a bountiful harvest to enjoy and share later this fall and winter!

This event is free and open to everyone. Can’t wait to see you all this Saturday!
