Dallas Organic Garden Club Meeting: Propagating Warm-Season Veg Indoors
January 22 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm CST
Do you want to get ahead of the summer planting game? Come and learn how to start early!
Shopping and buying vegetable plants is a passion for many. However, exclusively buying transplants can get expensive and varieties are often limited. Nurseries also sell the tools and materials for you to start your own plants from seed, and January is the perfect time to start tomatoes, peppers, and other warm season annual vegetables from seed indoors in preparation for transplanting into the garden in March or early April. This class focuses on understanding tools and processes for successful seed starting, and will appeal to any level of gardener. FREE. Snacks and refreshments and sign in/name badges at 2:30.Meeting starts promptly at 3:00pm and ends at 4:00PM.
The Greater Dallas Organic Gardening Club meets Jan-Sep in our Classroom.

Glen McGee loves learning and sharing gardeningtechniques with fellow gardeners. “I believe gardening is beneficial in so manyways: healthy food, good mental therapy,and sharing food and fellowship with friends. I am not an expert, but I amexperienced and hope sharing my experiences will be of benefit to you”.
“I grew up in Southwestern Oklahoma helping my grandparentswith their truck garden and my parents with their garden and farmingoperation. After a 30-year detour intoComputer Programming primarily in the banking industry, I returned my attentionto vegetable gardening. I have several raisedbed veggie plots at my home and in Project Eden community garden. As a Dallas County Master Gardener (DCMG) Intern,I serve primarily at Urban Farm in Garland assisting with their Orchard,Vineyard and Veggie production as well as assisting with wine making classesand making/selling jelly with DCMG and Texas A&M AgriLife teams”.
About 5 years ago I began propagating veggies from seed formy own use, and later expanding to be ableto provide seedlings to members of several community gardens in Richardson aswell as to several Richardson School gardens through Dawn Cleaves, their Title 1Garden Coordinator.
