FALLBROOK – Fallbrook Garden Club's youth group "Fallbrook Future Gardeners" held a free seed workshop for the local community youths at the local Grangetto's.
Christine Benton, an FGC member, and 2x award-winning garden blogger, instructed the group on seed planting and growing a garden from seed.
With an attendance of more than 20 youths, each received supplies donated by Grangetto's and seeds donated by San Diego Seed Company.
The youths learned how deep to plant each seed size, the soil type best used for seed starting, the importance of tagging the seeds' names, and how to best water seed trays and seedlings as they emerge. Each youth planted seeds, tagged trays, and took home their future garden.
The best takeaway was witnessing the process through the eyes of these future gardeners. With so much excitement for their little seed gardens, they planted their seeds with endless possibilities of being little farmers, learning how to tend to their healthy life-sustaining gardens.
Established in 1931, Fallbrook Garden Club is a member of National Garden Clubs, Inc./ Pacific Region and a charter member of California Garden Clubs, Inc. /Palomar District.
