The above two photos were taken at the first gardening workshop presented by Lone Sorensen on soil ph and seed selection.

Top photo:  The class is watching as Lone demonstrates the type of plastic for keeping plants warm.

Bottom photo: There was a small seed exchange at the class. Lone showed samples, such as carrot seeds collected by J. Milne in 2012.
