Attend this hands-on workshop to gain experience growing vegetables from seed for a fall garden!

Learn how to start fall vegetables from seed and gain hands on experience sowing seeds and transplanting seedlings during a hands-on workshop taught by Charlotte Glen, Chatham County Extension Horticulture Agent.

Many fall vegetables can be started from seed sown in mid to late summer, including cabbage, kale, collards, broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, spinach, and parsley. Attend our “Growing Fall Vegetables from Seed” workshop to learn how you can save money and grow a much wider range of vegetables by starting your fall vegetable garden from seed.

During this workshop Extension Master Gardener Volunteers will help you transplant broccoli and kale seedlings and sow lettuce and parsley seeds to take home for your garden!

Two identical sessions of this workshop will be held – choose the session that best fits your schedule:

  • Thursday, August 3, 10:00 – noon

Both workshops will be held at the Chatham County Agriculture and Conference Center, 1192 US 64W Business, Pittsboro, NC 27312. Click here for directions and GPS coordinates.
