Seed Swap, 2/21, 7pm

You seriously do not want to miss this event if you love seeds and garden talk. Last year it was our most popular event other than our customer appreciation day, and we expect it to be bigger and better this year. Bring your seeds to share, we will provide envelopes and sharpies for the swappers. No seeds? Seed swappers are notoriously generous, so no worries. We have lots of seeds and can share. Seed swapping and garden story swapping can build up a thirst and an appetite, so our friends at Jam Pan Food Truck will have their spicy Jamaican deliciousness there, along with their incredibly tasty ginger beer imported from Jamaica, mon.

Contact nancy@newearthgardencenter.com if you want to help out with the swap in any way. #NewEarthSeedSwap, looking forward to it!SeedSwap

Join us in the grow room Saturday, December 13th at 1:00 pm for a free hydroponics workshop. This will be an introduction to hydroponics. We will discuss and demonstrate different types of hydro systems, including deep water culture, ebb & flow, drip, NFT, and aeroponics. We will compare growing media choices: hydroton, rockwool, coco coir, or no media use. Water quality and temperature, pH, nutrient concentration (ppm), and reservoir maintenance will be covered; as well as what plants will grow well in the systems. This will be a hands on workshop, you will get a chance to measure ppm and pH, add and measure nutrients to a reservoir, etc. All New Earth hydroponic systems, our pH-107 Meter, and pH adjustment solutions will be 20% OFF for workshop participants, and each participant will get a chance to win a $50 gift card.Indoor-Tomatoes
