Growing your own vegetables from seed is a great way to get varieties not commonly found at garden centers. But with so many species and varieties to choose from, it can be hard to know where (or how!) to start.

Join Ashley Troth (Extension Agriculture Agent) and the Extension Master Gardener℠ volunteers of Durham County and learn how to get your veggies off to a good start. Participants will learn the basics of warm-season vegetables, including how to select species and varieties, proper growing conditions, and diagnosing common germination and seedling problems.

Two identical sessions of this class are available:

The class costs $6 per person. Registration and fee payment is required by Feb. 11, 2020. Select a date and click on the REGISTER link above. Additional classes may be offered if there is sufficient demand. If spaces are full, add your name to the waitlist on the registration page.

Both workshops will be held at N.C. Cooperative Extension, Durham County Center (721 Foster St, Durham, NC 27701)

This class is part of the Bull City Gardener Learning Series and is open to everyone.
