Program Description


Back by popular demand!!

With winter upon us, it's easy to think of January as a quiet time in the garden.  But now is actually the PERFECT time to get a head start on planting! No grow lights needed, just a sunny outdoor spot will do.  Join us for this fun afternoon and take home your own Milk Jug Greenhouse.  All you will need to bring is a translucent 1 or 1/2 gallon milk jugs or clear plastic 1 or 2 liter bottles.  We will have all of the other supplies needed for this activity, including locally sourced milkweed seeds. These mini greenhouses are also great for cool season plants like kale, broccoli or peas so feel free to bring those seeds along too if you have them on hand. Many thanks to the Fairfield Pollinator Pathway team for making this event happen!
