In this demonstration workshop, Steven Wynbrandt will teach and demonstrate Wynbrandt Farms signature “Sea Of Greens” planting technique – a little-known, precision, direct seeding technique that is used to grow remarkable quantities of the highest quality food. This technique is used for growing micro, baby, teenage or mature greens, as well as for starting 10 or 100,000+ seeds of leaf, fruiting or root crops of all kinds for your fall, winter, spring or summer garden. The comprehensive elements (from Biodynamic compost and soil fertility, to finesse watering) presented in this workshop will arm you to germinate infinite amounts of seeds astonishingly quickly, uniformly, and with extraordinary success. The results this technique yields is a total game changer and what Steven believes is creating the future of (Biodynamic, “beyond organic,” regenerative) agriculture!
