Imagine the satisfaction of harvesting and eating fresh, wholesome lettuce and herbs you have grown yourself! As you enjoy the greens of your labor, you glow with the confidence of knowing that your produce is safe and healthy for you and your family. You rejoice in knowing that the greens are easy to grow and that you can do it again because you have the tools, the experience and the knowledge.

This 2-hour workshop teaches you how to start lettuce and herb seeds for a quick and easy fall garden. Karen equips you with seed starting basics. You will plant and take home a reusable GrowEase seed starting kit and receive a tip sheet with instructions for raising your seedlings, transplanting the seedlings and enjoying the greens from your labor.
