Join Kim Martin and Laurie Bostic of Barking Cat Farm for Starting your Spring Transplants a hands-on seed starting workshop that will be taught in the FW Botanic Garden greenhouse. Tuition covers a variety of seeds and planting materials. You’ll go home with an understanding of seed starting and seeded pots that can become the foundation for your home garden.

Instructors Kim Martin and Laurie Bostic, owners of Barking Cat Farm, focus on growing high quality crops in an organic and sustainable manner. Brix testing is done regularly to monitor the nutritional quality of the produce and compost and compost teas are applied to the soil to ensure that soil biology is constantly improving. Both Laurie & Kim have their Permaculture Design Certificate from Geoff Lawton’s Permaculture Design Course. Both have studied under Dr. Elaine Ingham and are working towards becoming Certified Soil Life Consultants. They offer permaculture design and soil biology consulting services to other growers and gardeners.

This class will be held in the Fort Worth Botanic Garden Conservation Greenhouse Classroom.

$20 members/$25 non-members.

Please Note: Online registration for this class has closed. Limited walk-up registration will be available at the door.
