Greenwich Community Gardens and Abilis present: Microgreens
When the weather is cold, let’s move gardening inside by growing microgreens! Greenwich Community Gardens has teamed up with Abilis’ Master Gardner Chris Hadin to bring back our popular microgreens class. Learn how you can grow these nutritious and flavor-packed little veggies indoors, even in winter! This class takes place in the comfort and warmth of the Abilis Greenhouse.
Saturday, December 2, 10:00 – 11:15am
at the Abilis Greenhouse, 50 Glenville Street
To reserve your place, email email@example.com, or purchase tickets in advance via our Classes page.
Cost per student is $15.
Students will receive a packet of microgreens seeds and a free microgreens growing guide.
The Armstrong Court greenhouse will again be open 1-2pm for seedling sales on Saturday 5/27, 6/3, and right after the garden class on June 10th at 11:30 AM. Great prices and all-organic plant starts!
The Edible Summer Garden
Saturday, June 10, 2017, 10-11:30 am
The tasty world of edible gardening!
Greenwich Community Gardens’ founder and Advanced Master Gardener, Patty Sechi, will continue to guide you “down the garden path” to your own bountiful summer vegetable garden. Patty will go over garden basics for those who missed the spring class and talk about what and how to plant as warm weather approaches. She’ll also cover bugs, weeds to look out for, and succession and companion planting. Mindful, organic and water-conscious gardening practices will be discussed, as well as a quick primer on composting. Class includes Q&A and a tour of the garden.
