The 2014 spring planting season at the Thanksgiving Farm has begun.  Dayhab groups have been filling flats with soil and sowing a variety of seeds.  Among those sown were onions, scallions, and kale. Each flat had 128 cells (holes for planting).  Some flats had up to 9 seeds per cell.  That’s 1,152 seeds in one flat! Over the course of a week dayhab sowed 84,608  seeds.  Hopefully. these seeds will become plants that will be transplanted into The Center’s fields to finish growing.

Pictured below are advanced seeders; they can plant a variety of sizes with both speed and accuracy.  They play a large role in the vegetable production process at the Thanksgiving Farm.  Job well done!
