Indoor Gardening for Year-Round Salad

Caroline Eliot

The Indoor Gardening for Year-Round Salad workshop will teach a simple method for raising salad greens year-round, without grow lights, greenhouses, or fancy equipment. Based on Peter Burke’s excellent book, Year-round Indoor Salad Gardening, you will learn how to grow nutrient-dense, soil sprouted greens in less than ten days, even in January!

Caroline Eliot, former Associate Director of Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust, is an enthusiastic, albeit somewhat casual, gardener who likes trying out new ideas. She learned of this indoor gardening method from MOFGA’s newsletter advertising Peter Burke’s workshop at the Common Ground Fair and was particularly intrigued that it didn’t require grow lights or bright, south-facing windows. Unable to attend the workshop at the Fair, she bought his book and started experimenting. Her favorite pastime is learning and sharing new ideas, especially those which enhance self-sufficiency and reduce carbon emissions.

This event is one of the Land Trust’s Winter Gardening Workshops, a part of our Tom Settlemire Community Garden. The Workshops are a wonderful opportunity each winter to learn from master gardeners through practical lectures and hands-on training. Gardeners of all levels can improve their skills.

The workshops focus on organic gardening methods and provide information about topics such as choosing plant varieties, starting seedlings, permaculture, the  use of native plants, soil enrichment and mulching, gardening in small spaces, and controlling common pests and disease.

Workshops are held on Sundays from January – March each year, from 2:00-3:30pm at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Brunswick.
