Greenhouse Share Program 2014

Hello garden friends!

As spring is approaching, I imagine you are getting excited about pretty seed packets, beautiful
flats of planted seeds, and absolutely adorable seedlings ready to be planted out in the garden.
But what happens if you don’t have green house space to help those tiny seeds in their journey to becoming hearty plants in the garden?

Fear not! The Urban Gardening Coalition is at your service. Bring your seedlings or seeded trays to us, or arrange for us to pick them up and we will water them, tend to them, and store them in the greenhouse until they are ready to make the transition to the great outdoors!
There will be a nominal fee for this service (let’s be honest, we encourage sustainable practices,
and we want to exemplify that in our own practices). The fees help us purchase fertilizer, pay for
labor hours, and cover other miscellaneous plant care expenses. Please let us know if this fee is
a hardship for your organization or garden – we can exchange volunteer hours for greenhouse
space.

If you are interested in participating in our Greenhouse share program, please email hotugc@gmail.com to receive an application form.
