Grow Your Own Garden Classes

Do you want to start a garden, learn how to grow with organic methods or start your own seedlings? We speak to folks all the time about growing their own food and we are offering a series of three workshops on how to have a beautiful and edible garden of your own.  Join us for one or all three of our garden series classes taught by Joannée DeBruhl, owner of Stone Coop Farm.  All classes will be held in the Stone Coop Farm greenhouse, located at 9615 Musch Rd., Brighton.  SAVINGS – Take all 3 classes for $115

Planning Your Own Garden
This class will provide you with spacing and light requirements for different crops, and when they should be planted outside and started inside.  We will work through a simple raised bed planting guideline, and how many plants you can grow in this space.  We will also review which crops grow best by directly sowing seeds outside and which work best with seedlings. 
Fee: $35               Dates:  3/4 or 3/18          Time:  10:00 am to 12:00 pm

Start Your Own Seedlings
If you want to have organically grown seedlings for your garden, you can buy them directly from us or you can start your own at our Seed Starting Class.  We will provide you with the soil, trays, domes, and skills to start your own seedlings.  You will be able to choose from the seeds we use on the farm or use your own.  Class includes 50 soil blocks, with a tray, clear plastic dome, and seeds. Additional soil blocks, trays, potting soil and pots are available for an additional fee.

Fee: $65               Dates:  4/8 or 4/15          Time:  10:00 am to 12:00 pm
 
          

Planting and Weeding Your Garden - May 14th

We will also show you how you can get a jump on the growing season.
