Seed Starting for Kids

Hannah Kincaid - MOTHER EARTH NEWS
Workshop Level: Beginner
Hannah grew up on a fifth-generation family farm outside of Lawrence, Kansas. Homeschooled, she spent much her childhood outdoors in the Kansas prairie. During this time, Hannah realized how important spending time in nature is to our happiness and well-being. She continues to foster a deep curiosity about the benefits that nature and wild plants can offer, both medicinally and nutritionally.

Workshop Description

This workshop provides a hands-on experience for kids interested in getting started on the road to becoming gardening experts. We’ll discuss preparing seed starting soil mix, all the materials needed to get seeds off to a good start and the basics of caring for young plants before putting them out in the garden. Participants will then assist with the entire seed starting process. (Hands will likely get dirty!)
