Your two hour experience will begin with a short history of bell peppers. We'll then move on to tour our facility including the germination container, compost area and greenhouses. In the greenhouse you'll see and learn about our vertical Growpol system where the "magic" happens. Then, it's "hands-on time"! You'll plant some seeds, participate in mixing batches of soil, bag some soil and transplant pepper seedlings into bags. Rather watch than participate, no problem! You'll be sent periodic emails (if you wish) showing the progress of your peppers! By the way, did you know that there are no organic regulations in Bermuda? We can't call ourselves organic so I coined the phrase, "organish". I look forward to sharing a fun couple of hours with you!
Hi, I'm Dr Pepper (Richard Simon). I operate Bermuda's only organish* vertical growing business where in two greenhouses, we grow bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, romaine and bib lettuce, basil and baby bok choi. Just about a year ago, I knew nothing about farming but through trial and error, have learned to grow beautiful bell peppers, all year long. I'm an entrepreneur and have 5 businesses in Bermuda. I've never worked for anyone else and have been in business for over 40 years. *there are no organic regulations so we call ourselves "organish".
