Do you want to start seeds indoors, but you just don’t have the space? Are you looking for a more efficient way to start and grow seeds? If so, this is the class for you!

Currituck County Master Gardener℠ Volunteer and owner of Fuggles Flower Farm, Emily Nekl is presenting this free course on Thursday, February 2, 2023 from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. at the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Currituck County Center. Register for this free event at

When asked about her experience with soil blocking, Emily had this to say, “Soil blocking is an excellent method for germination. Using less water, plastic trays, and space, we have almost entirely changed our farm’s germination program from traditional flats to soil blocks. Great for the home gardener or farmer, this is a relatively unknown germination technique that has excellent potential for all. In class we will discuss the technique, blocking mixes, seed sowing, as well as germination techniques for a number of vegetable and flower crops.”
