Seed Starting for Spring Workshop

  • Oakhurst Community Garden (map)

The Homestead Atlanta helps people connect with forgotten heritage skills and explore innovative sustainable-living approaches. See all workshops here.


Love perusing all the amazing varieties in seed catalogs but not sure where to go from there? Join Wylde Center’s Executive Director, Stephaie Van Parys, and learn to take advantage of the tremendous variety available when you start your own vegetables from seed. This class is for both those who have never started plants from seed as well as those who have experienced challenges. In addition, Stephanie will show you how to turn “garbage” into mini greenhouses!

A wide and fun variety of seeds will be on hand for you to sow into your new “greenhouse,” and you’ll receive helpful tips on how to keep them all alive.

Please bring three clear or opaque plastic containers.
