How to Grow Your Own Microgreens at Home (Demonstration on 9/15)

Saturday, September 15, 2018, 10:30 am to 11:30 am in Broad Brook, CT (72 Harrington Road).

This is a “Pay at the Door” session.

$5 to attend (cash or check) at door.

The step-by-step process to grow your own healthy and nutritious baby greens (microgreens / sprouts) at home will be demonstrated.

Following the demo, seeds and materials (limited supply) will be available for purchase.


I’ve been growing my own microgreens for over 2 years now and shown this process many times at farmers markets, schools, and other venues. Now is your chance to see it finally. This may be the last opportunity to do so this year!

All you need are the right seeds, simple tools (which you may find right in your kitchen) and a space to set your little trays at home. That is it. It really isn’t difficult and the benefits of having healthy fresh greens in fall and winter is truly wonderful.

At my demo, I will show all the seed types, tools, and a step by step process. Once you have the hang of it – you really will be enjoying growing mini greens and eating them too.

And by the way, you do not need “grow lights” as some people assume. Or heating grow mats or pads. It is not difficult and it is fun.

Some seeds and kit materials will be available for purchase, and we will direct you on where you may find all the items needed if you wish to purchase them online after the demonstration.

Micro-greens are like tiny sprouts minus the seeds and they are delicious. You may use them in various ways – put on sandwiches, make a salad mix, eat like an appetizer, side dress appetizers, and put in soups, etc. Just snip and use.

Benefits of my process:

Do not need to buy special fancy “equipment.”

No need for grow lights or heating mats.

Easy, 5 to 6 steps and eating them withing 4 days of starting the process.

Really tasty greens (broccoli, lentil, radish and many, many more types).

Great to do with kids – small scale gardening – fun to watch them grow.

Use tools in the kitchen you have today.

Healthy eating – aids digestion and more.

It is a great snack (beats potato chips).

May be done all year round – especially nice in late fall and winter months.

The greens are pretty to look at – on your window sill at home.

You do not need a green thumb to do this!

Cost effective and fresh from scissor tips for harvest to your plate.

Very clean (no pesticides). You are in charge!
