Winter Sowing Project
Saturday, February 1st
11:30am - 1:30pm

The idea behind winter sowing is to sow the seeds outdoors in miniature greenhouses during the winter, allowing them to germinate naturally during the spring.  This interactive program will explain the science of how it works, the techniques to make it successful, and how to make your own miniature greenhouse with common everyday items. 

Please bring an empty transparent/translucent plastic milk/juice container for this project.  All other materials will be provided.

Space and supplies are limited; Early registration is encouraged.
Sign-up
HERE.

A special Thank You to Robin Venezia, the Lunenburg Pollinator Habitat, and Ginny Albertson for donating time and seeds for this project.

Featured Venues for January

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum(called Fenway Court during Isabella Stewart Gardner's lifetime) is a museum in the Fenway–Kenmore neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts near the Back Bay Fens.  The museum was opened in 1903 by Isabella Stewart Gardner, an American art collector, philanthropist, and patron of the arts.  It houses an art collection of world importance, including significant examples of European, Asian, and American art, from paintings and sculpture to tapestries and decorative arts.  It is housed in a building designed to emulate a 15th-century Venetian palace, drawing particular inspiration from the Venetian Palazzo Barbaro.  Gardner collected and carefully displayed a collection of more than 7500 paintings, sculptures, furniture, textiles, silver, ceramics, 1500 rare books, and 7000 archival objects from ancient Rome, Medieval Europe, Renaissance Italy, Asia, the Islamic world, and 19th-century France and America.  Among the artists represented in the galleries are Titian, Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Raphael, Botticelli, Manet, Degas, Whistler and Sargent.
