Sunflower and sunflower shoots

Workshop for Ages 7-10: MicroGREEN Thumbs

Workshop Series for Ages 7 - 10

April 23, 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 nutty and delicious sunflower 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 second of a microgreen series, in which we learn how to grow a different microgreen crop. For the young microgreen enthusiast, sign up for one, two or all three!

we ship supplies after registration

* Pre-workshop prep:

Please soak your seeds the night before in a cup of water.
