New - 14" Marginata Water Use Report - From Nursery to Interior

This experiment used a data logger to measure the Percent Volume Water Content, in the soil, for a 14" Marginata Staggard Cutback as it transitioned from growing in the nursery to installed in an interior office environment. The purpose was to illustrate the rapid slowdown of water used by a plant when it is undergoing this transition. The report contains pictures and graphs that illustrate the water use of a single plant from August 21, 2017 to December 15, 20107.

Press Release: Farm Life Opens a New Shade House

House 6, so named because it is our sixth shade-house on the property, has recently been completed. The first plants were brought in to house 6 in July of 2013, 10 months after land preparation began in October of 2012. The shade-house is a Cravo retractable roof house that sits on 2.5 acres roughly in the center of the nursery. Like our other 2 five acre Cravo shade-houses, Farm Life staff built this new shade-house entirely. Also designed and installed by Farm Life are 2 irrigation systems and an electric system for heaters and motors. Perkins Electric, ran the wires and made all final connections to complete the electric system.
