Seed Starting at the Winter Farmers' Market

Thinking about starting some seeds indoors for your summer garden this year? Not sure when to do it, what you need, or how to start? Join us at the Champlain Islands Winter Farmers’ Market on March 6th for a demonstration on inexpensive, easy ways to give your garden a head start! The Farmers’ Market will have seeds for sale beginning in March and continuing through summer. We’ll give you advice on which seeds to start indoors, which seeds to wait and plant directly in the garden, tips for good germination and sprouting, and information on how to transplant your seedlings into the ground when summer arrives.

As always, there will be delicious hot foods and baked goods, jams, jellies, pickles, artisan crafts, soaps, and much more! Join us at the South Hero Congregational Church on South Street from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm to beat the winter blues!
