Container Herb and Lettuce Gardening Kit

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Steuben 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.

Your kit includes:

  • Three planting containers
  • potting mix for the containers, and
  • three packets of seeds

In Chemung County, curbside pickup is scheduled for Saturday, August 1st, 2020, from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM, at Chemung County Fairgrounds.

Pre-registration is required by calling Cornell Cooperative Extension at 607-734-4453, Monday to Friday, from 9:00 am – 4:00 PM.  Registration will end on July 31st at 12:00 PM.
