Even though times are tough, YOU CAN sustain your family. The Piscataquis Valley Adult Education Cooperative and the University of Maine Cooperative Extension have put together a series of workshops that will give you the skills to get started in self-sufficiency.

What’s the best way to start seeds?  High seedling mortalities and leggy, unhealthy plants that never perform well when moved to the garden are some of the common problems that will be discussed.  Learn the best gardening practices for starting plants in the home.  You’ll bring home a newly planted seed that you started in class.  Patricia Jones and Amanda Costello are graduates in the Master Gardeners program through UMaine Extension.
