April 13, 2018 CRAFT: Early Season Growing Without a Greenhouse

Event Overview
Early Season Growing
Garden Dreams Urban Farm & Nursery
806 Holland Ave
Pittsburgh, PA 15221

Date & Time
Friday, April 13
2pm - 5pm

Event Description
Gettings plants started early sets up your production for the rest of the season. Most farms use greenhouses for starting seeds, but they are often too expensive for new and beginning growers to afford and take up too much space for those working with limited land. Starting plants indoors under light fixtures is a great alternative for those without the space or money for a greenhouse. Join PASA and Garden Dreams Urban Farm and Nursery for a tour of their indoor growing facilities and a discussion of indoor growing strategies.
Registration will be open until 4/12/2018 at noon.
