Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chemung County and our regional CCE Extension offices are excited to share our gardening skills and nutrition knowledge with our entire community.

With the help of NYS Ag and Markets, we have made a do-it-yourself gardening kit, complete with everything you will need to grow tasty and healthy lettuce and herbs indoors.

The kit includes:

  • Three planting containers
  • Potting mix for the containers
  • Three packets of seeds
  • A brochure with planting information on the basil, green onion, and lettuce provided.
