Title: Urban Harvest Class: Growing Transplants for the Vegetable Garden
Location: Westbury Community Garden

Description: Dropping your seeds into the ground and hoping for the best is not always the best strategy for kick-starting your vegetable garden. Learn how to start your seeds in containers and then transplant them out into your garden when they are ready to thrive outdoors. Commercially available transplants generally are not grown organically and can be expensive. Sprouting your seeds indoors can help you garden organically and do it economically. We teach you everything you will need to know about this money and time saving technique, plus how to build an affordable greenhouse.
Dress for getting dirty, wear closed toe shoes, hat, sunscreen and bring water. If rain is predicted, bring a raincoat or parka. We have a large sheltered area for teaching. Bench seating available, limited number of chairs. Bring your own chair for more comfort. Class will be called off only if you receive a phone call. If you experience problems finding the location, call Gary on his cell 832-656-2819 for directions and assistance.
