  Helping beginners
From: Ellen Hornig <hornig at Oswego.EDU> on 1997.01.15 at 20:57:54(141)
It occurs to me that one thing that proves daunting to beginners
(of which I was one - yes! - not that long ago) is that they lack the
physical set-up which the rest of us develop over the years. For
example, when I'm saying that seed-sowing is easy, I'm saying this
from the perspective of someone who has, in her basement, right there
where she can wander down after dinner and play:

1 3-bay stainless-steel sink w/spray attachment and portable shelves
to set over the bays and use as work areas (plastic, drain-thru shelves)

A whole lot of fluorescent lights, mounted on wooden frames for easy
raising/lowering (and a bunch of old tables under them, including
one defunct pingpong table)

Work tables beside the sink

Several large plastic bins which hold germination mix, potting mix,
and pure grit
