Containerized Production: Options When Quality Native Soil Isn't An Option   


Many urban farmers find they have limited options for growing in high quality native soils. Containerized production offers an alternative. The growing media and container are the key decisions for non-soil based production. In this webinar, we will look at container options, non-container options, growing media, and the economics of containerized production.
