Growing Microgreens+ At Home --  VIRTUAL

No Green Thumb needed! This 6-week course seeks to use the power of plant therapy to improve participants' quality of life through education and firsthand experience growing edible plants from seed.

Step-by-step, Mark and Brendan will take you through the process of growing your own healthy, nutritious microgreens. Microgreens are fast growing, take up little space, and are packed with antioxidants and phytonutrients and are upto 40x more nutritious than in the mature size.

During the weekly sessions, SASC staff will educate and empower participants through growing 3 types of greens – quick growing microgreens (10-days), slower growing microgreens (21 days) and a leafy green or vegetable of individual choice. At harvest, microgreens and herbs can be used as needed - cut right from the tray and enjoyed at its peak freshness!
