The Scott County Master Gardeners will be a hosting a spring {soil} block party on Saturday, March 23 at 10 AM at the Scott County Extension Office, 875 Tanglefoot Lane, Bettendorf. We will cover seed starting basics, soil blocking tools, processes, and care, and have plenty of time to practice making your own soil blocks to get a jump start on seed starting. Soil blockers and soil mix will be provided, as well as an assortment of seeds, but feel free to bring your own. (Recommended that you bring seeds that should be started 8 weeks before the last frost). Please bring your own trays or containers to take your blocks home in. Disinfected styrofoam meat/veggie trays or the take- out containers with lids work great.

Free and open to the public. Registration is appreciated. Link to register. Reach out to Jolinda Eggers at or 563-359-7577 with any questions.
