About this Event
Check the menu of a fine restaurant or the produce section of a specialty grocery store, and you’re likely to spy microgreens: tiny, delicate greens that add color, texture and flavor to a variety of foods as a garnish or ingredient.
Big on nutrition and flavor, microgreens can be expensive to purchase. But they can also be grown cost-effectively at home, in a tiny space and with simple supplies. All you need is a sunny windowsill, or an well-lit area along with one of our microgreen growing kits, and you’ve got all the essentials for growing your own microgreens. This is a great crop for urban gardeners who are limited to a windowsill, balcony or fire escape.
Join us to learn how you can grow-your-own nutrient-packed and delicious microgreens at home during these challenging times. We need to take care of ourselves more than ever and this is a simple and fast way to get the healthiest greens possible into your diet without leaving your home. Perfect for teleworkers and also kid-friendly, you’ll learn everything you need to know to grow the easiest and fastest varieties like radish, arugula, broccoli, and more challenging microgreens such as celery, parsley, and basil. Microgreens have 4-6 times the nutrient density of the fully-grown plant according to the USDA and are an excellent and fun way to add freshness and micro-nutritents to your diet.
This course will be taught by our resident microgreen expert, Mary Ackley. Mary is the Founder and CEO of Little Wild Things and has over five years of experience growing more than 30 types of microgreens at a commercial scale. Little Wild Things produces Certified Naturally Grown microgreens and edible flowers for dozens of the areas premiere restaurants, hotels, bars, and caterers. This course will be a simple conversational lecture held at the farm. It will not include pdf or powerpoint style content.
You’ll have the option to purchase one of our Farm-in-a-box kits to go along with the course at a reduced rate of $10 (local pick-up option), or $10 +$8 shipped. Please visit our online store at for more ordering options or to buy additional grow kits. Please allow 7-10 days for shipping. Our kits provide enough materials to grow two growing cycles of microgreens (and two seed types).
