Seed Starting Interactive Presentation Tuesday March 26, 2019
6:30 PM until 7:30 PM
Spring is finally on the horizon! That means it’s time to start thinking about your gardens. The lingering chilly days are the perfect time to start seeds indoors. But where do you begin? Enya Cunningham from Back 40 Farm Group will give a presentation on how to start seeds. She will cover everything from which seeds to start, when to plant them, how to plant them, what materials and techniques work best, and more! A demonstration will coincide with the presentation and the first twenty-five patrons to register will take home their potted seeds.
This presentation is the kick-off to the second season of the Gunn Memorial Seed Library- a partnership with Steep Rock Association’s Judea Garden. Stop into the library throughout the season and “check out” a package of seeds to plant at home. At the end of the season, harvest the seeds from one of your plants and bring them back to the Seed Library for next season.
Enya came to Back 40 Farm in 2015 after graduating from Vassar College. She was drawn to farm work through a passion for working with her hands and a desire to do meaningful work for the food system. She has become a capable farmer and continues to hone her skills daily. Enya is passionate about self-sufficiency, interdependence, and finding a free minute off the farm to go birding.
Back 40 Farm is a family-owned business nestled in 85 acres of some of the best farmland in historic Washington, Connecticut. This is the farm that began the Back 40 Farm Group, an ecologically and socially responsible restaurant and retail group based in Greenwich CT. Back 40 Farm seeks to inspire dialogue about land stewardship and our responsibility to the future of the food system. The regenerative farm, rooted in the principles of agro-ecology, produces organically-grown food and flowers to feed our communities: body and soul.
