Plan(t) Your Year

Two Sessions:

Monday, January 9, 2023 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. (FULL)

Saturday, January 14, 2023 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. (Register Here)

721 Foster Street, Durham, NC 27701

The new year right around the corner brings with it beginnings, resolutions we make for adventure-seeking, learning, and healthier eating, and, of course seed catalogs, that show up in your mailbox and get you excited about spring! Growing plants, especially vegetables, from seeds offers so many advantages to the home gardener: a broader variety of vegetables to choose from, a cost-effective way to garden versus using more expensive plant starts, and the thrill of nursing seeds into seedlings and ultimately onto your plate.

Join the Bull City Gardener Live! program this January to learn how easy it is to grow veggies year-round in the Piedmont region. The class will emphasize seed starting, garden bed planting, season extension, succession planting, and so much more.

Three Extension Master Gardener℠ of Durham County Volunteers will lead this exciting workshop. Sara Smith will focus on propagation, Bev Tisci will talk seed starting, and Kathryn Hamilton1 will explore succession gardening and season extension. Part of the presenters’ extensive veggie resumes includes work on the Durham County’s recent tomato grafting project, which won international acclaim and a first-place spot in the research category at the David Gibby International Master Gardener Search for Excellence in 2021. 2

While the class is geared toward beginners, rest assured, it will be chock full of advice from veteran vegetable growers and seed starters, so there is something for everyone, regardless of experience.

Though the class is FREE, pre-registration is required to secure your spot through Eventbrite.
