Know your Roots: Inside-Out  Guide to Seed Starting | Thursday, March 30, 6-7:30 PM | Raleigh City Farm

Reserve your spot here for our upcoming Know Your Roots: Inside-Out Seed Starting Workshop!

 Interested in starting seeds indoors for your summer garden?  Or maybe you’d like to start a container garden of spring veggies that can go straight outside?  We’ll show you how to do both and send you home with the starter package of your choice!

We’ll cover how and when to start your seeds indoors versus outdoors for summer versus spring crops.  We’ll provide a planting guide for the month of April for you to take home.  You can choose to plant and take home a starter kit of your choosing: the salad patch kit to put out this spring or the pizza garden kit to start inside now and plant out this summer.


Tickets provided at a discounted rate thanks to the generosity of the Oakwood Garden Club.
