Step Up Your Seed Starting to Grow More at Any Scale
Seed starting can be time consuming, messy, take up a lot of space, and have inconsistent results. Join three farmers with several decades of collective growing experience to learn about their best practices (and lessons learned) for seed starting at scale. Whether you want to increase your production space, or improve the efficiency of the space you have, you’ll find out about tools and techniques to germinate seeds faster, and grow healthier plants, and improve your bottom line.
Cassandra Madden from Nature Works Farm, Silvan Goddin from Grow Pittsburgh’s Garden Dreams Urban Nursery, and Megan Gallagher from be.wild.er farm share how each of their operations have fine tuned their seed starting systems to achieve results. We cover planting media, seeding techniques, watering, and greenhouse versus non-greenhouse-based production. Pasa’s Dan Dalton and Lisa Miskelly also share some great tips!
