As LED lights become less expensive and more commonly available, shopping for lights for starting seeds indoors can become quite confusing. Come to our class to be held on March 28th at 6:00-7:30 at the Watauga Agriculture Conference Center, where we will help you unravel the mystery of purchasing lights for your seed starting needs. We will discuss the light requirements of seedlings, along with the correct spectrum of light, as well as how to understand the intensity of light you are purchasing. Brian Bonville has lent his expertise that he gained while working with NC State University and several biotech companies, to create a grow room for Extension Master Gardeners. The room is being used to grow plants for community projects. We will see this set up in use, as well as discuss several other options. Brian will assist with teaching this class.
