Microgreens are the young seedlings of vegetables, herbs, beans, and grains, grown in a high density in flat containers for a very short period of time. You can grow them at any time of year, indoors with minimal equipment, so this is a great way to grow some of your own food even if you don’t have access to a garden! They’re known for being nutrient dense and having punchy flavour profiles.
Our Head Grower, Dish, will demonstrate step-by-step how to grow microgreens, from sowing, to growing and harvesting. He’ll also give you some basic tips and advice for growing indoors more generally. At the end of the workshop we’ll provide you with instructions so you can try growing your own microgreens at home.
At Square Mile Farms we’re passionate about health and wellbeing. We have a vision of healthy, sustainable cities of the future being centred around urban farming. That’s why we bring urban farming to the workplace and other urban settings and run workshops on all sorts of topics, from nutrition to growing at home. Find out more about us here.
