Support Local Businesses, Especially Local Agriculture
Today we vote each and every day. But the vote that we cast is not in a ballot box. We vote with our dollar and we cast our vote for what kind of community we want to engage and live in. Most of the time we don’t think of this as voting. Convenience has becomeContinue reading “Support Local Businesses, Especially Local Agriculture”
Living Micro-greens by P.C.G.

Eating Greens Does the Body Good!
We all know we should eat more leafy greens. I was told that for years and I brushed it off for later in life. I mean, who wants to really eat a sad side salad with iceberg lettuce and carrot shavings? No-one does. No-One. But the truth is that leafy greens are trulyContinue reading “Eating Greens Does the Body Good!”
New Compostable Packaging!
We are upping our packaging game! Unfortunately, plastics are a necessity in the convenience based world we live in today. Our packaging has always been recyclable, as well as made from recycled materials, but we found a way to lessen our impact even further. A couple of weeks ago I came across a photoContinue reading “New Compostable Packaging!”

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle on the Farm!
We try to be as sustainable as we can with our farm operations. We reuse trays, compost, and avoid using plastic when possible. The farming industry has become overrun with plastic products, and we’re trying our hardest not to add to that problem. We use plastic trays for our microgreen planting, but re-use them asContinue reading “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle on the Farm!”
Building Our Farm with Compost!
We currently harvest anywhere from 50 to 80 trays of microgreens weekly. This leaves us with a lot of compostable goodies! Since we grow our Micros on a standard organic potting soil we have perfect starting materials. The crops are only grown for 10-15 days so they use up hardly any organic material.
