The latest Field Trip explored the Manna House Hydroponics in Lacey’s Spring. They grow lettuce, Fusion and Butterleaf for Manna House, some food banks and others. We were inside a building (a blessing on a hot August day) and to keep the atmosphere sterile, were gowned, gloved, shoe covered and capped. When the manager leaves at night, she turns on the grow lights. For observing this we also had special glasses. The plan is very efficient — one of the amazing facts was their monthly water bill is only around $40. We had 28 members and guests participating.
