We have added a new date and new venue for our “How to Grow Your Own Micro-Greens” demonstration.
Date and Time:
September 20th, Wednesday, 6:00 pm
Stafford Cidery in Stafford Springs, CT
$10 pp to attend demonstration
Option to purchase Starter Kits following the demo.
This is a demonstration where Cathy Testa of Container Crazy CT shows attendees the step-by-step process to grow their own micro-greens/sprouts in their own home. It is not difficult – you practically have all you need right in your kitchen! However, you do need to understand the specific, yet simple steps, involved and key components required to this unique growing technique. It does not require “special growing jars” or the repeat “rinsing” as done with other traditional methods of growing these healthy and nutritious micros.
During the demonstration, you will learn all the steps, some info about the nutritional value of the microgreens, about organic growth enhancers, what not to do, and much more.
Cathy T has been offering this talk at farmers markets, schools, other venues, and it has become very popular. Not only are microgreens tasty, they are packed with nutrition and good for you. Growing microgreens is something you may do year-round – not just in summer, but in winter too. It is more cost effective to grow your own as compared to purchasing them – and they are fresh right at your finger tips!
Following the demonstration, you may purchase Starter Kits to get “growing” literally right away at your home, and you will be eating healthy microgreens by the end of the week. Each kit has the seeds, components, and other items needed to get started with an instructional document which answers additional questions. It is the perfect way to give it a try and enjoy a quick fresh harvest.
The method shown by Cathy Testa of Container Crazy CT allows you to grow microgreens within 4-7 days, with no special grow lights or heating mats. You will be enjoying them in salads, on snacks, in soups and sandwiches. Everything from spicy radish sprouts to mixed varieties, alfalfa, mung, lentil, and many many more types are available to try. Come enjoy the evening learning how!
