  • Want to make your garden worth your time and energy? Starting plants from seed is a huge part of that–a packet of hundreds of seeds can be a fraction of the cost of a six-pack of veggie starts. And most veggies don’t grow optimally from store-bought transplants! Come learn an experienced homesteader’s tips for starting plants, from seed selection to growing media to Hawthorn Farm’s compost-heated greenhouse. In this lively interactive experience taught by Alexia Allen and Daniel Kirchhof, hosted by 21 Acres, we’ll become professional mud pie makers by exploring the soil block method that can eliminate annoying plastic pots and grow delicious lettuce, onions, tomatoes, and more from seed.
