Friends and Family Microgreens Club

One of our ways to get fresh flavours throughout the winter months is growing microgreens. With 4 to 5 times more nutrition than their mature counterparts, it doesn’t take a lot to pack in the vitamins, minerals, protein and more, along with great taste. We eat these pretty well everyday in everything from soups and salads, to smoothies, sandwiches and wraps. My favourite is a simple mixed-microgreens salad with olive oil and a little black pepper. Can’t beat the freshness!

We have started a small club with family and friends to share the cost of microgreen seeds, soil, trays, electricity, etc. In our club, everyone pays a small amount and gets the equivalent of a full 10 x 20 tray every 2 weeks, usually with 3 or 4 varieties in their bag / container (supplied by member). We only use certified organic seeds and soil, which may cost a bit more, but much healthier and safer. We will share some of our successes and failures as this project moves along.

Might be worth looking into for your own family and friends!

Here are the current greens we have in stock. If you are from the Kelowna area, we would be happy to talk to you about potentially joining our group. If you would like to grow your own, we can supply certified organic seeds across Canada. We have been asked about growing / starter kits and are currently researching for the best value units.

The new store will be open very soon!
