Growing vegetable crops in controlled environments

In this second webinar on Controlled environment agriculture (CEA), also known as protected cultivation or growing, you will hear from guest speakers about different aspects of skills you need to consider when planning, setting up and running an operation.

You will hear from Abi Mordin, Director at Propagate and also Co-Founder and Grower of the small market garden Hidden Veg. Through her extensive network in the growing community she can share insights from different types of CEA set ups.

Amber Crowley, Curriculum Lead at UHI Argyll and Lecturer in Horticulture and Rural Skills, University of the Highlands and Islands UHI will provide information on where you can get the skills to move from a small operation to a more commercial scale. Her colleague Andrew Garven will be happy to take any questions around growing mushrooms and setting up a retail operation.

Tara Wight will introduce the Landworkers Alliance Market Garden Skills program as an example of peer-to-peer learning.
