UMaine Extension offers indoor seed starting workshop in Somerset County

The workshop Seed Starting Indoors will take place at the University of Maine Cooperative Extension Somerset County office at 7 County Drive in Skowhegan on Friday, March 31 from 12:30–3 p.m.

Brett Johnson, UMaine Extension sustainable agriculture and horticulture professional, will share strategies used to optimize conditions for seed germination, seedling growth and acclimation to the outdoors. Variety selection and sowing schedules will be discussed, as well as what qualities make a planting medium ideal for seed starting indoors. A light lunch will be provided before the presentation. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A discussion and an optional seed-sowing workshop.

There is a suggested donation of $0-15 for this program and registration is required. For more information and to register, visit the event webpage. To request a reasonable accommodation, contact 207.474.9622;
