Right in our back yard a fascinating ultra modern factory/farm of hydroponically grown lettuce. The CEO Paul Seller explains in a series of videos the philosphy and history. Something to think about for future food produce. Interesting. Sue

"I have Tropical Milkweed seeds I'd be happy to share with club members. The Monarch Butterfly is on the endangered species list. One reason for their droppings population is the lack of food sources. This is one way to help their recovery." Greg Billings. Call Sue Billings at 978-365-5716 and arrangements can be made to get the seeds.
