Seedling Time

This is the time of the season when we start indoor seedlings of warm season crops such as tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchinis, and squash.  These plants will grow in the classroom for the next 6 weeks until the weather is warm enough for them to be transplanted into the school gardens.

All it takes is some seeds, soil, and pots.



Plant your seeds, but not too deep.  Make sure you label your plants!
Set them by a sunny window or under a grow light...and don't forget to water often.

There are now many seedlings on the go in classrooms at SPEC's partnering school across Vancouver.  Thank you West Coast Seeds for donating all the seeds and Home Depot for donating all the specialized seedling soil.  Stay tuned for next time when we transplant these plants to the school gardens!
