Winter Sowing Workshop
January 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
The public is invited to attend a free Winter Sowing Workshop from 1-2:30 pm on Sunday, January 22 at the Hopewell Train Station. Participants will learn how to build a mini greenhouse using a repurposed milk jug. This easy winter sowing method is inexpensive – and ideal for many native plants or early-season garden vegetables!
The workshop will be led by sisters, Carole Fay and Laurie Cleveland. Fay is a retired agriculture teacher and Master Gardener; Cleveland is the Executive Director of the Sourland Conservancy and a PA Master Naturalist. The two will offer an informative PowerPoint presentation, demonstration, and a Question and Answer session.
Participants will gain knowledge about cold stratification, the habitat requirements of several native plants, and some of the wildlife that the plants support. Each participant will receive all of the supplies needed to winter sow at home: a repurposed milk jug, a twist tie, native seeds, and soil.
