This one-hour workshop, priced at just $15 per person, is designed to introduce you to the art of seed blocking and guide you through creating your own plant starters from seeds, all while ditching plastic cups for a more sustainable approach.

What is Seed Blocking?
Seed blocking is a fantastic technique that allows you to create plant starters from seeds without the need for disposable plastic cups. It's an eco-friendly and efficient way to nurture your plants from their earliest stages. In this workshop, you'll not only learn the ins and outs of seed blocking but also get your hands dirty as you create your very own plant starters.

Choose from Our Personal Seed Collection
One of the highlights of this workshop is the opportunity to select seeds from our personal collection. We've curated a diverse assortment of seeds, each with its own unique potential. Whether you're interested in vibrant flowers, delicious herbs, or hearty vegetables, you'll find a selection that suits your preferences.

Leave with a Tray of Ready-to-Grow Seedlings
By the end of the workshop, you'll have successfully created a tray of seedlings ready to thrive in your own garden. It's a rewarding experience that will set you on the path to becoming a green-thumb gardener.

Plant Care Tips and Insights
Our expert facilitators will provide you with valuable tips on caring for your plant starters. Learn when and how to transfer them into the ground, the specific watering needs of each plant variety, and essential details about planting, nurturing, and harvesting.
