Whether you have a small home plot or a large garden for profit it is rewarding and cost effective to grow your own seedlings. The first half of the workshop will be in the classroom learning about seed selection, materials, tools and basic goals to successful growing. The pros and cons of using soil blocks, various seed trays, starting mixes, seeding tools, germination, pest and disease mitigation, transplant timing will also be covered.

Speaker Biography

Scott Franklin earned a degree in environmental studies and plant and soil science from the University of Vermont. After graduation he volunteered at a biodynamic goat farm while teaching English in France.  He learned that farming combined his love of food, working with his hands, and being outdoors.  He worked in Long Island as a farmer and market manager on the eighty-acre farm and bustling farm stand. After a season of learning the ins-and-outs of a large CSA farm at Siena Farms in Sudbury, MA Scott decided to set out on his own, landing happily at Norwell Farms where he has been farming successfully for 5 years.
