Seeds to Starts Workshop, Part Two

gcp_sts_spring_blog

On Sunday, February 1, Green Corn Project volunteers met to follow up on the seed starting for this season’s gardens. As you can see, we like to get our volunteers started young!

The volunteers pricked out the seedlings from the flats where they sowed the seeds two weeks earlier. They transplanted the seedlings into individual 4-inch pots where they will grow until they are planted during the spring dig-ins.

Patagonia Event a Success!

Green Corn Project wishes to thank Patagonia for selecting us to participate in the “Air, Land, and Water” benefit at their new store at 316 N. Congress. About 250 people attended and learned more about GCP, Environment Texas, and Colorado River Foundation.

Austin Homegrown provided entertainment while visitors bid on silent auction items donated by Patagonia and other event sponsors.

On February 7, volunteers who signed up at the event will participate in a special spring gardening prep workday.
