Microgreens are tasty and nutritious young greens that can be eaten, like sprouts, as a fresh snack or added to salads, smoothies and soups. In this workshop you’ll learn how to grow your own trays of microgreens, and how to grow your own sprouts at home year-round. You’ll learn the difference between sprouts and microgreens, review the many possible seeds that can be used for starting sprouts and microgreens, and look into troubleshooting common problems. During the workshop, Yael will demonstrate how to prepare your own tray of microgreens, and your own jar of sprouts, and will teach the tricks and tips to growing your own at home.
