We hope that our online community will all join our exploration of polycultures and monocultures. We believe this is the first ever international citizen science experiment into a regenerative growing approach, and would love all of you, particularly those in Europe to be part of it!
Many of you may have already prepared your experiment site and got your seeds ready, which is brilliant. If you haven’t done that yet, don’t worry; there is still time to get started. Depending on where you live, the beans, spinach and radish can be planted from now until June.
You can find the full instructions for getting started here including how to register for the Experiment. This includes the seeds you need, the sizes and spacing of each of the four plots and, importantly, how to layout and plant the seeds so that all our plots are consistent. You’ll also find out how to do the key experiment measurements of your harvest quality and yield.
The GROW Experiment forum is the place for any questions about the experiment. (Sign up to the GROW forum to join the conversation.)
The free online Living Soils, Growing Food course is about regenerative growing practices and experimenting on your plot. Sign up before Friday 4th May for unlimited access to all content. If you complete the course, you will receive a free certificate!
