On. Wed. Jan. 18 at 10am, join the Council on Aging’s hands-on Wildflower Workshop and learn to “winter sow” seeds that will bloom in spring and summer. In this hands-on workshop you will learn how to grow new flowering plants for pennies, not dollars, by starting with seed. You’ll make mini-greenhouses from recycled gallon milk or water jugs to germinate and grow plants outdoors in winter.
Wayland’s Native Plant Ambassador Jean Milburn and Master Gardener Shelley Trucksis will have a variety of seeds to choose from. Bring five clean, clear gallon-sized milk or water jugs, gloves, apron, a small trowel, and a box to carry your jugs home once they contain soil and seeds. We will also have some jugs and boxes available. A beautiful summer garden full of native, pollinator-friendly wildflowers starts with tiny seeds planted during the heart of winter. Registration required, cost is $5 per person. Contact the COA at 508-358-2990 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
