    Perfect… I would love to see your spreadsheet. Mine is mostly in my head and is different for inside the greenhouse and outside….

    Hi Stephanie – I think I emailed you that recipe…. do you still need the biochar recipe? Send me an email please!

    Hi Donna, I attended your talk last night in Courtenay and bought some bio char. If I understood correctly you have a recipe from Steve Solomon on how to mix the bio char to get the best benefit from it. I would appreciate if you would share that recipe. Look forward to hearing from you your talk was so inspiring.
    All the best, stephanie

    I am starting seeds at various times. Some for the first time and some are ‘repeat clients’ so I start them more than once – like cauliflower. I am working with a friend who is thinking of developing a spread-sheet for me. I will keep you all posted

    Are past newsletters available so that I can get an idea of a full year of when to start which seeds? Many thanks. Loved the live facebook session.
