Think Spring - Planting Onion Seeds


 

Youth in The Food Project’s Dirt Crew program began planting onion seeds in 250 flats in the greenhouse in Lincoln last Saturday. When grown, these 75,000 seeds will produce over an acre of onions at  Baker Bridge Farm.

 

Youth and volunteers will return in early April to transplant the seedlings into the ground.

 

It's not too early to sign up for a CSA and enjoy fresh produce when its harvested.
