Year-round, Indoor Salad Growing

A learning event at Frogtown Farm, 941 Lafond Ave, St. Paul 55104

Thursday, January 14, 6:30pm – 8:00pm

Did you know you can grow fresh salad sprouts throughout the winter with no lights, no green-house, and little more than a cupboard and a windowsill?  Frogtown Farm and Macalester College invite community members to learn a how to grow delicious, healthy salad greens in 7-10 days at a fraction of the cost of buying them at the market. This workshop is for first-time and experienced gardeners!

Participants will go home with a “growing salad” and information on how to continue growing salads at home.  The method taught is based on the book Year-Round Indoor Salad Gardening by Peter Burke.

Space is limited! To hold your spot, please RSVP with your name and phone number to info@frogtownfarm.org or 651-600-3414.

Thank you to Macalester College for providing the supplies through their small sustainability grant.
