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!
