Container Gardening

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Steuben County and our regional CCE Extension offices were excited last summer to share our gardening skills and nutrition knowledge with our entire community.

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

Instructions for using the kit, which include good gardening techniques are shown in the video below.
