Seedling Station Growing at West Vernon

Seed starting station at West Vernon Elementary is in full force! With the shelving system, hooked up to button-drip irrigation, we can fit a maximum of 24-small plug trays filled with over 100 plants in each tray. As the seedlings grow, we then transplant them in larger containers for a few weeks before taking them around the city to different school gardens.

Check out these lettuce plugs that are growing so fast! Within a week they’ve doubled in size. We’ll be transplanting them soon!
