How to Grow Strong, Healthy Plants from Seed: Feb 13th

Growing plants from seeds has many advantages, including: It's more economical, you have control of all the inputs and you have greater access to plant varieties. If you're a seed saver, you'll have to know how to start your saved seeds! 

February and March are traditional seed starting months and we're excited to have Mike Weeks from Fifth Season Gardening Co. Asheville Market join us as our Tea, Biscuits and Gardening guest. 

Mike knows A LOT about starting seeds and will be on hand to share some of that knowledge and answer your seed starting questions. 

This workshop will cover equipment, germination and seedling health. Everything you need to know to take your seeds from dormant bundles to thriving fruit bearing plants!

Asheville Tea Company will be present with local teas as our workshop series sponsor.

How to Inoculate Mushroom Logs: Jan 16th

January is always a slow time in the garden, but a great time to inoculate some mushroom logs and start your mushroom garden. So, come and learn everything you need to know to set up a mushroom log. This will be a hands on workshop and everyone will get a chance to drill and inoculate some logs. The class is FREE for everyone to attend and we'll have mushroom growing handouts for all. 

If you want to take home a fully inoculated oak shiitake log then we'll be selling the inoculated logs at the end of the class for $20 each.

If you have a battery operated drill and want to bring it along then that could help, last year we had enough but more could've helped. Thank you!

Tea, Biscuits & Gardening will take place at our new larger location, so we can accommodate more people and more mushrooms!
