Fall Gardening Workshop: Transplanting and Direct Seeding for Fall and Winter Crops

UCSC Farm & Garden Program - Santa Cruz, California

Plan your fall/winter garden and extend your gardening season! In this workshop, Orin Martin and Sky DeMuro of UCSC's Alan Chadwick Garden will teach participants about crops that grow well in fall and over the winter in the Monterey Bay region. We will cover sowing seeds and raising seedlings indoors and will also teach what crops to sow directly in garden beds and which to transplant as young seedlings. Be prepared to get your hands dirty as you practice these skills. Participants will go home with a six-pack of vegetables or flowers that they've sown.

Workshop Cost: Cost of the workshop is $30 general admission (pre-registered) or $40 (at the door); $20 for Friends of the Farm & Garden members (pre-registered) or $30 (at the door); $15 for UCSC students and limited-income (pre-registered) or $20 (at the door).
