Seed Starting Workshop

About Seed Starting Workshop at Weir River Farm

Join us for an immersive 2.5-hour workshop with South Shore Permaculture where gardening enthusiasts of all levels can unlock the secrets to successful seed starting. South Shore Permaculture’s Facilitator, Todd, will cover a range of topics including selecting the right seeds, creating the ideal environment for growth, exploring sustainable practices, and mastering the art of planning. We’ll have a hands-on portion that will include building soil and practicing seed-sowing techniques. Todd will also guide you through troubleshooting common issues in a dynamic Q&A session. Don’t miss this opportunity to cultivate your gardening skills and witness the magic of transforming tiny seeds into vibrant, nutrient-dense plants!

We recommend participants bring a folding chair, notebook, pen or pencil, and gardening gloves.

About the facilitator: Known affectionately as The Grateful Gardener, Todd has been tending to the soil since he was a toddler in the family garden. He is a co-founder of South Shore Permaculture which is a local organization committed to cultivating regenerative physical and social ecosystems across the South Shore of MA through community building, educational opportunities, and more. He is a founding board member of the Wild Ones – South Shore chapter, a NOFA organic land care professional, & an expert in everything from ecology to conservation to permaculture. Todd has grown almost any native plant you can think of, from moss to sea kale.
