Plant Propagation Workshop at GreenMarket
October 14, 2013
The Alliance for the Arts GreenMarket continues its Fall & Winter Growing Season Workshop Series on Saturday, October 19 at 10:30AM with a presentation on the basics of vegetable and plant propagation. Starting your own seeds and reproducing from cuttings is an affordable and rewarding way to keep your garden growing and to provide an abundance of plants to share with friends. This session will cover choosing your varieties, timing of plantings, container options, potting media, tips specific to different plant species and more.
This workshop is presented by Millisa Bell, also known as “The Unruly Gardener.” Bell is a Florida native, organic gardener, permaculturist, and beekeeper who shares her passion for local food production through speaking and teaching events. She believes there is nothing more worthy than devoting quality time to the food we eat, and that one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves and our communities is an understanding of how to grow and cultivate a portion our own food supply.
The GreenMarket’s Fall & Winter Growing Season Workshop Series continues every 1st and 3rd Saturday through March. The series is intended to inspire the community into more sustainable practices, including growing their own food organically in small spaces like backyards and patios. The workshops are free, but a $5 donation is suggested, to help the Alliance continue to bring these programs to the public.
