Greetings, microgreen lovers! It may be chilly out there, but we are still growing your favorite micros year round. Give us a call if you have a sudden craving for salad!
We have a lot of new things on the horizon. First off, we are in the process of becoming Certified Organic! It’s a long process but we hope to see that conclude by the summer if all things go smoothly. Another bit of news is that the hydroponic lettuce production is going very well, and we should have that to market soon.
Lastly, our aquaponics system in Delaware has been built. Currently we are not growing anything in it or raising any fish because we are waiting to make sure we establish the nitrogen cycle in it first. If you want to watch a video about it, check out our Youtube Channel.
As always, you can buy our microgreens online through Friends and Farmers, or you can order a subscription directly from us!
The purpose of Learn and Grow Sustainably is to teach students of all ages to appreciate the interaction between humans, plants, and the environment. Our Sunflower Grow Kit is fully compostable and allows students to witness the growth of an edible food product within 10 days. This lesson plan series will help students to learn about plant growth, nutrition, and physiology as well as a little bit of materials science through experiments on our kit’s compostable plastic container. These topics are important for fostering a sense of environmental stewardship for a more sustainable future.
The activities in this two part lesson series are optimized for grades 3-5 and are aligned with the science standards for that grade band. However, this lesson can be adapted to suit K-2, Middle School, High School, and Adult Education by aligning the lessons to similar standards at different grade levels.
Here are some images from the workbook if you’d like to take a look through it.
