Build Your Own Grow Lab & Starting Seeds

Want to start your own seedlings this year? It’s cheaper than buying transplants and you can start unusual varieties that you may not find elsewhere. In this workshop, we will guide you through the process, provide the materials, and send you home with a grow lab that you can use to start seedlings. Learn when to start different seeds, how to plant, water, thin, maintain and provide correct lighting. In Colorado, we must start some vegetables indoors in early spring in order to get a full harvest during the growing season. Such plants include tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, onions, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, brussels sprouts and some herbs. This grow lab is 24” x 20” x 26” and can fit easily on a tabletop or on the floor. It breaks down after use for easy storage in the off-season. This set-up is perfect for use at home or in a classroom. Don’t need a grow lab? Join us for just the second part of this workshop to learn how to start seeds indoors (6:30 – 7:30pm).

This workshop will take place at DUG Headquarters, located at 1031 33rd Street, slightly north of downtown Denver, on February 22nd, from 5:30 – 7:30pm (6:30 – 7:30pm is the seed starting portion of this workshop).
