Maple Leaf resident Stacy Brewer is offering neighbors the chance to learn how her garden grows through Seattle Seedling’s Spring Fling, which will include a class on “Seeds and Seedlings,” followed by a lunch prepared by Brewer.

She writes on her blog that at the spring quarter class:

You will learn techniques for growing vegetables from seed, an economical and rewarding way to get your garden started. We’ll cover square foot gardening, seed sowing and strategies for thinning and transplanting new seedlings. This class will be hands-on and an awesome confidence booster for beginning gardeners! You’ll get the skills you need to get your own garden growing, whether you have a large garden or just a few containers on the balcony.

In addition to leaving with a full belly, you’ll also get a “garden nerd goody bag” filled with help from Brewer’s friends and Seattle Seed Co.

The first class March 30 is already full, but she’s got a few spots left in the April 7 class, which is from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Cost is $50 and you can RSVP by emailing Brewer at

UPDATE: The April 7 class is also now full, so Brewer has added two more classes May 4 and 11, also from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. She notes that participants will be working on her Giving Garden during the hands-on portion of each class, and that children 10 and older may participate.
