Saturday 15th February, 10am–12pm,
A Harvest time event brought to you by Local Food Connect, North East Region Permaculture (NERP) and Edible Hub Community Garden
Starting your own seedlings from seed saves money and lets you access exciting varieties that won’t be available at the nursery. Learn how to start seedlings of winter crops like kale, broccoli, lettuce, spinach, chard, cabbage, fennel, dill and more (the best time to get started is late summer, not autumn!). Find out what makes a good seed-raising mix and how to mix your own using homemade compost. Have a go at making soil blocks and learn the pros/cons of seed trays/modules versus soil blocks.
Have a go at making soil blocks and newspaper pots. Bring your own seeds if you have them and a flat bottomed container to take home soil blocks or newspaper pots. There will be seeds to share and spare punnets.
