Not simply a garnish, microgreens are highly nutritious and fun to grow. Learn why
gourmet chefs and nutritionists alike love these tiny and beautiful greens. Participants
will learn how to grow microgreens and how to use them in the kitchen. Anyone can be
successful with microgreens, from a child with a little handful of seeds to a city dweller
with merely a windowsill.
