Sustainability Partnership grant uses lighting to grow indoor garden

To grow plants indoors, you need to get the right lighting equipment. We were lucky to have the help of experts from Worm’s Way when we purchased our lighting. Running 18 hours on, six hours off to duplicate natural sunlight, these fixtures use 432 watts.
Circle Leader Haley Alvarez and Circles Allies nominated for Be More Awards. Congrats Haley and Allies! Read the nomination for Haley here.
