Pea seeds and pea shoots

Workshop for ages 7-10: MicroGREEN Thumbs

Workshop Series for Ages 7 - 10

April 15, 2021

Let’s try a really SMALL gardening project that you can do entirely inside on your window sill: growing microgreens! These are seeds that you grow to be snacked on as seedlings, ready in just a couple weeks. Join us for growing easy-peasy pea shoots. 

Participants will be mailed a kit of supplies including soil, tray, seeds and a recipe. In this live virtual workshop, participants can plant along, ask questions and learn how to care for, harvest and enjoy the shoots as a healthy snack.

This workshop is the first of a microgreen series, in which we learn how to grow a different microgreen crop. For the young microgreen enthusiast, sign up one, two or for all three!

we ship supplies after registration
