March 30 (6:30 - 8:30 PM)

Spring weather may be late, but it is still a good time to start planting seeds, both inside and out. Join experienced NW VEG veggie gardeners for Q & A and informational handouts, plus take home some seeds to get you growing! NW VEG membership coordinator Jill Schatz will lead the discussion and bring lots of seeds to share, including her favorite varieties of kale, lettuce, mountain spinach (orach), Asian greens, and wrinkled, crinkled, crumpled cress. Attendees are welcome to bring extra seeds or starts to share too; we’ll have supplies to package seeds, in case we want to split packets.

Join us at this month's Vancouver potluck, 6:30pm at Unitarian Universalist Church of Vancouver, 4505 East 18th St., Vancouver, WA 98661.
