Mar 14: Seed-starting workshop

Grow Pittsburgh's seed-starting workshop is a chance to explore the historic 1897 Frick Pittsburgh Greenhouse, then learn all about starting your own seedlings at home this year.  After a quick tour of the Greenhouse we will move to the Education Center for a hands-on workshop led by Hanna Mosca, Frick Greenhouse and Shiloh Farm Manager.
Topics will include choosing the proper soil, crops, trays, pots and lighting along with a hands-on seed-planting activity.  Each participant will receive a schedule and instructions for seeding common garden crops.  A list of resources will also be provided for purchasing the seeds and equipment that will be discussed.  Each participant will be able to start their own 6 pack seedling and leave with the skills to get started right away.
1-2:30 p.m. at the Frick Art & Historical Society's greenhouse (7227 Reynolds St. in Point Breeze).  $10 fee (free for Grow Pittsburgh members);  please register here!
