Winter sowing is a unique approach to starting seeds which does not require a grow light, heat mat or any indoor space.

During the winter, seeds are sown into hand-made mini greenhouses such as old milk jugs and then spend their days outside in the winter sun. Miraculously, the seeds know when to germinate and are ready for transplant to your garden come spring. Some argue that winter sowing produces hardier seedlings than the indoor, more labor and resource intensive method. This program includes a discussion and demonstration. Have your own clean, recycled mini-greenhouses ready to plant along with us to get started on your winter sowing journey.
