Growing Great Seedlings


This workshop shows you how to work with the “laws of nature” in order to step into a powerful regenerative process in your own backyard. 

The understandings and skills Kay has built up over the last 5 decades in this field are now available in this affordable and easy to follow workshop.

This course contains over 2 hours of video footage, a generous database with design plans and all the references needed to enable you to grow high-quality seedlings. The seedlings workshop will also enable you to develop a deep understanding of the significance that lies in growing your own seedlings in this regenerative way. 

This “growing great seedlings” workshop is our favourite course for demonstrating how to create regeneration in your own back yard. Growing great seedlings is one of the first steps in that process so its a great place to start your regenerative journey.

This course is also a great demonstration of what we mean when we talk about regeneration.

Who is this course for?


This course is for all levels of home gardeners, both country and urban. 

Its also great for already existing small scale commercial seedling producers who want to improve their efficiencies in terms of time, space, resources and seedling quality, which will naturally reduce costs and maximise profits. 

This is a particularly great course for inspiring people around the magic of nature. 

This is also a great resource for home schooling groups and parents who wish to include their children in the garden and the regeneration revolution. 

CLIMATE: The workshops are based around giving people an understanding of the principals of science and the laws of nature which can be applied in varying ways to any climate. In our videos we are specifically showing people how to apply these rules in a temperate climate.


Episodes and Learning Outcomes


Episode 1

  • Learn about the benefits of growing your own seedlings
  • Understand the natural process of coevolution, and the benefits of working with the laws of nature.
  • Know how home gardeners can work in a regenerative way to create a resilient, strong and healthy future for us all.
  • Know the importance of working with the genetics and the environment.
  • Learn how to choose seeds to achieve the best outcome.
  • Learn about the environment great seedlings require.


Episode 2 – Materials

  • You will know everything you need to grow great seedlings, without plastic and using simple and affordable things we can make ourselves.


Episode 3 – Planting Seedlings 

  • Know how to make your own seed raising mix, using your own materials or bought materials.
  • Learn about the different ways seeds can be planted, and how to decide which method to use.
  • Learn how to sow seedlings to be “pricked out” later, and how to sow “scatter sown” seeds that go directly into garden when ready.


Episode 4 – Observation 

  • Learn how to handle seedlings.
  • Be able to understand the relationship between plant roots and microbes.
  • Be able to tell if the seedling’s roots are exuding sugars.
  • Know how to tell when seedlings are ready to be pricked out, or planted into the garden if ‘scatter sown’.
  • Understand why it is critical to prick out and transplant at the optimal time.
  • Learn how to direct sow seeds into garden.
  • Learn one of the creative ways to germinate seeds early without a greenhouse.


Episode 5 – Observation pt. 2 

  • Learn more about different options for seed raising mixes.
  • Understand that our job is to provide the seedlings with what they need in order to photosynthesise efficiently, so that they can start growing nutrient dense food, sequestering carbon and growing soil.
  • Learn how to create a regenerative system.
  • Learn how to mark seed trays to get accurate spacings between seedlings.
  • Learn how to prick out seedlings in 3 steps.
  • Be able to know when and why some roots need pruning.
  • Learn about making microbe food to boost your seedlings (recipe included in database)


Episode 6 – Observation pt. 3

  • You will know what a ‘great seedling’ is.
  • You will be able to understand the importance of ‘hardening’ seedlings off before transplanting into garden.
