The Mullica Township Schoolyard Garden continues to grow good things. Our latest project is a seed starting/grow station. After attending AtlantiCare’s Sustaining Garden Workshop and hearing Garden Goddess by the Sea, Liz Donaghy, we went into action. Liz explained that when starting seeds for your garden you need warmth and lots of light. We purchased a heavy duty five shelf unit, four fluorescent light units (we added wire and plugs), four seed starting heat mats, twenty feet of chain, sixteen “S” hooks, a timer and a power strip. We then got to work and spent the day building. We set our seed flats about two inches below the lights and got growing!

  1. We are now hardening off all our plants for our May garden planting. Our growing station was a huge success!
