VIDEO: Microgreen Windowsill Grow Tips from Seed to Harvest

To get the trays, seeds, and supplies in the video see our Microgreen Shop.

We were inspired to see how cost-effective and easy in-home farming is for the production of a crop such as microgreens, and this video may help give you perspective. They grow fast (in about a week), have up to 40x the nutrients of their mature counterparts, and taste great.

Our Vision: To increase knowledge about the advantages of eating more heathy and locally grown vegetables, starting with fast-growing microgreens, that can be easily an inexpensively grown indoors year-round on windowsills. We hope to engage with high-school and college students as well as adult students ranging from health enthusiasts to seniors, who live independently or in retirement communities. We believe in “life-long learning” and welcome opportunities to share our experience in underserved communities to reduce the lack of access to fresh affordable vegetable in “food deserts”.

Non-profit 501(c)(3):

The complexity of establishing a non-profit 501(c)(3) takes time relative to tax deduction status for donors. We launched in 2021 and the process to have a certified 501(c)(3) “.org” extended into 2022. The non-profit status gives us the ability to raise money and support students of all ages as well as service underserved communities, such as food deserts, in cities and rural communities. The non-profit status also helps us develop economies of scale to reduce the cost of supplies such as seeds, grow mats, grow trays and grow lights for our members and participants.
