Check out these photos of today’s planting of Valerian! These precious plants have moved from greenhouse to hoop frames to outside tempering to now, their final journey to the field. Our amazing Farm Stewards gather at the field edges with trays full of tiny plants. They ready themselves on the custom planting rigs that take up to 4 of them, powered by tractor, across the fields.
