The agricultural class from the high school in Alexandria, Minnesota, along with their teacher Linnay Schweisthal visited our greenhouse on Thursday. Jeremiah Stark, one of the owners of Glacial Ridge Growers, led the class on a tour of the plant production facility.
Propagation, seeding, transplanting, and general requirements for a heathy crop were the topics of the tour. Growing with sound, sustainable, earth-friendly techniques was also part of the discussion.
The high school class will soon be receiving small plants from Glacial Ridge, which they will transplant and grow in the greenhouse at their high school. What a great opportunity to share our love of plants with a new generation of growers!
