Seed Starting: COVID and Sustainable Ag

NCAT’s ATTRA Agriculture Specialists are producing short videos to share what they are doing on our farms and homesteads, in hopes of giving people ideas for building food security and resiliency at home and in their communities.

In this video, Devona Bell, NCAT’s director of sustainable agriculture and sustainable communities, shares her seed starting system – which is based in the sun room of her Virginia home and features homemade grow tables. Devona also discusses potting mix and her choice of seed varieties.

We also hear from Eric Sharp, operations manager at Seven Springs Farm, where Devona buys her potting soil.

This workshop is produced by the National Center for Appropriate Technology through the ATTRA Sustainable Agriculture program, under a cooperative agreement with USDA Rural Development. ATTRA.NCAT.ORG.
