Jump Start Your Garden at Spruce Spring Stream Farms

Learn about the benefits of cold weather gardening. Wear weather-appropriate clothing/footwear and bring a lunch. Participants will leave with vegetable seedlings and a reference resource workbook.
Instructors include Dawn Deydey, Mary Cosman and Gaëtane Carignan
