Event Description

As the seasons change and our outdoor plants begin to wane, we look to brightening our indoor spaces with all things green. But indoor gardening can present challenges of its own. In this workshop we will walk you through the basics and not so basics to get you started on creating your own thriving indoor plant paradise!

Uriah Crane, one of our Garden Managers and indoor horticultural specialists, will teach you everything you need to know about soil, light and watering needs for your indoor garden. We will examine what conditions are favorable for different types of plants, their care requirements, and steps for addressing common challenges. We’ll also discuss varied propagation techniques from stem and leaf cuttings to division. During the workshop each participant will re-pot a small plant or two in a terra-cotta pot based on their personal lighting situation and aesthetic tastes.

Let’s green the city one windowsill at a time!


THIS EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE AT THE BROOKLYN NAVY YARD FARM IN OUR INDOOR LOFT. DETAILED DIRECTIONS CAN BE FOUND BY FOLLOWING THE LINK BELOW.
