Growing Microgreens for Home Consumption


Want to be able to grow delicious, nutrient-dense food year round in a small space? Look no further! Microgreens have been gaining popularity in recent years because they are a great way to grow vegetables and herbs when space and weather are an issue (sound like Vancouver?). Microgreens grow quickly and are perfect to have on hand in the kitchen – they make delicious additions to salads, sandwiches, smoothies, soups and sauces. Learn how to go beyond “alfalfa” and enjoy a wide variety of nutritious, truly “home-grown” veggies and herbs. Participants will take home handouts with tips and resources, as well as sprouting seeds to start growing in their microgreen mini farms. If possible, participants are asked to bring medium glass jars with lids to the workshop.
