Garden starting class at Nature Center

-A A +A

February is the perfect time to begin planting seeds indoors to extend your growing season. In a two-part class at the Los Alamos Nature Center, Natali Steinberg will teach everything you need to know to start your veggies and annuals from seed. The class meets Sundays, February 11th and March 18th, from 1:30-3:30 p.m.

This class will teach attendees how to read a seed catalog and a seed packet, what equipment they need to start seeds indoors, how to transplant successfully into the garden, and how to start some veggies directly in the garden.

There will be a lot of handouts and demonstrations, but no seed planting during class.

Steinberg has taught this class for 20 years at a nursery/greenhouse in Boulder. She had a large vegetable garden on her farm, and she sold produce at the Boulder Farmers Market. Steinberg also raised and sold bedding plants.

The cost is $50 for both sessions. Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) members can take the class for a discounted rate of $40. Advance registration is required.
