‘Grow your own Greens’ Kits are available at the Sunrise Gardens stall at Old Strathcona Farmer’s Market. You can grow your own pea shoots, sunflower shoots or wheatgrass in 7 to 10 days! These kits include everything you need to grow microgreens at home, and we are happy to see an increase in customers excited to try them out.
We act to offset our hard plastic use by encouraging our customers to return clean used containers to us at the market. We reuse these containers to make the ‘Grow your own Greens’ Kits. Growing your own microgreens acts to help connect with your food, and to help reduce our environmental footprint as well as your own. It’s easy to grow nutritionally dense shoots in your windowsill!
We’re always happy to chat about your successes and challenges in growing microgreens, don’t hesitate to come by.
