March 2nd, 6:30pm: Save the Date For a Seed-Starting Workshop

25 Jan

On the evening of Saturday March 2nd, CVEarthlab will host a seed-starting workshop in the community room.  Join us!

As in years before, the garden committee will provide seeds and help participants create sub-irrigated planters from upcycled plastic bottles.  All are welcome; please bring your own organic potting soil if you plan to transplant into the CVEarthlab garden (we use only non-GMO seeds and organic materials).

Free Indoor Seed-Starting Workshop

When: Saturday March 2nd, 6:30pm to 7:45pm

Where: Community room at 230 Jay Street

Most plants started at this workshop will be ready for transplant in May and June.  We plant to hold weekly evening sessions in the garden to help others hard-off baby plants and prepare them for transplant. More details to come.

Get Psyched for Spring!

You can vote on your favorite flowers here so we can try to have  popular seeds at the workshop.  What’ Your Favorite Flower? Poll

Scenes From Sachet Workshop, December 2018

19 Jan

Check out pictures from the sachet-making workshop in early December. To upcycle dried lavender, lemon balm and other herbs harvested at the end of the 2018 season, the garden committee hosted an intimate and fun event.  About 11 attendees made a total of 35+ fragrant sachets.


Next time we hold a pre-holiday sachet workshop, harvesting and drying herbs before October will allow us to do the crafting several weeks before Hanakkuh and Christmas, hopefully accommodating more participants.
