Growing Microgreens and Sprouted Fodder Crops

Saturday, January 27, 2018

Come learn how to grow increasingly popular microgreens with the farmers from Freeway Farm in Lakewood. Microgreens are easy to grow and offer the benefits of high nutritional value, year-round growing potential, and low start-up costs.

At This Workshop:

You’ll find out why these tiny but mighty microgreen crops are so popular with growers, food enthusiasts, and chefs. Hosts Janie Wallace and Aleta Sewell will explain the soil-less hydroponic growing set-up they use to grow microgreens for themselves and their CSA. Growing microgreens using a soil-based medium will also be covered.

Come see microgreens in action and leave with a complete resource tool-kit to get started growing microgreens for yourself or farm business. Microgreens are not just trendy with people—Janie and Aleta will show you how to grow them as a year-round fodder crop for your animals too!
