30 Day Lettuce: Seed Starting (No Garden Required)

Hey everyone, here is an outline of the class I want to teach, any thoughts are welcome and would be much appreciated! 

I'm working on adjusting the sound for my intro video, its getting a bit fiddly, I will post re-worked intro soon. thanks so much for everyones advice and support!!!

My reasons for wanting to do this class is so I can share my passion of growing truly organic pesticide free food indoors, with as many people as possible. Since discovering non-circulating hydroponics more than a year ago, thats pretty much been my mission ever since. 

Thanks for checking out my project,

Jodie
