Seeding Holy Basil

April 2nd, 2010

It’s seeding time in the Gaia Greenhouses. First steps are underway to make our seeds ready for germination. A lot of work goes into our herbal supplements, starting from just one seed.

Organic seeds are poured onto a vacuum seed tray so a few seeds can bunch up together at a hole. They collect at the holes, which are exactly spaced, as our seed trays are. The seed sorter is turned upside down and the vacuum released so that the seeds flop into the seed tray (see in the background), already filled with organic soil. Now the seed trays have 1 to 3 seeds per tray “cubbie.” Trays are laid out on tables in the greenhouse for germination.
