  1. VERTICAL HYDRO RAFT? Well sort of.
    There is a rather interesting video showing how they went vertical with what we would use as a hydro floating raft sheet of Styrofoam. The video is in Chinese,but you should be able to watch it and get it. This is a great idea..and could easily be replicated. Vertical is the way to go as we can produce so much more food vertically.

  3. I'm located in San Diego too and buy from San Diego Seed Company all the time – I took a class from Brijette @San Diego Seed Company at Cuyamaca College with my husband. She is full of knowledge. Thank you so much for sharing, hope to tour her garden some day ;o)

  4. Kevin that was a great episode thanks for sharing it with us. I'm going to have to try some seeds from San Diego Seed Company

  5. Those old machines are gorgeous. Old tech is amazingly productive. I worked voluntarily on a veg farm and separation of spuds from soil was amazing!

  6. Yep – not only is home saved seed adapted to your own microclimate, but you know the seed is FRESH – which is an issue when you buy in seed. I always have a bed or two set aside just for seed production – they're not cropped at all (except for seed). I loved this video – wonderful! I'd be happy to buy seed from Brijette, but I'm in Australia..

  7. Awesome video, not only for the story of the company, but the flow and the vibe from both! Big thumbs up! I will definitely be checking out their website 😊

  8. Really enjoyed seeing the whole process. I’m just a novice gardener but I watch a lot of these farm videos and they never fully explain how they get to the final product. Thanks!

  9. how do you make sure the plant pollination stays true to the variety? in a regular garden it is impossible to grow zuccini, cucumbers and squash/pumkins at the same time without risking unwanted genetic inputs from the sides… plus if neighbours grow a different variety you falsify the output, i guess?

  10. That is a lot of equipment! More detailed process than I would have imagined. Thanks for posting! Hello from San Luis Obispo, CA (a few hours north)

  11. Nice one guys, I sell seeds too here in Australia. Main reason is because it's hard to get good organic seeds. Australia is about to start treating all organic seeds for bio security reasons.
    Great to see your taking control of your seeds locally, so much in this,,a real science as you know.
    Love the vids,,,thanks so much

  12. I am a subscriber to your channel. You have good content but I watch youtube videos on my tv with chromecast/google home and wanted to say sometimes your videos are unwatchable because your volume is so low compared to other videos. I either have to turn the volume all the way up on tv or skip video…. just a thought

  13. Oh man this just inspired me to try saving my seeds. I haven’t had the guts to do it yet, but I’m feelin’ pretty gutsy this year

  14. I found you from our channel. Thank you very much for putting out this video, I really enjoy gardening for many years. I heard from someone else that money doesn't grow trees, BUT it really does, along with plants. Plus its money you can eat. looking forward to more videos. All the best, Paul
