We Grow Microgreens, LLC, by urban growers Lisa Evans and Tim Smith specializes in growing highly nutritious microgreens using organic and sustainable growing practices. Microgreens are tender, edible seedlings of vegetables and herbs grown to the cotyledons (seed leaves) or first true leaf stages. In comparison to their mature plant counterparts, microgreens provide approximately five times more vitamins and carotenoids. Unlike sprouts, microgreens are grown in soil and only the stem and the leaves are eaten not the root as is done with sprouts. Similar to sprouts, they are valued for their high nutritional value. Microgreens can provide strong flavors, bright colors and interesting textures as garnishes for salads or entrees.
Their greenhouse is in Boston, Massachusetts and are using natural sunlight for growing. Evans experienced the benefits of eating primarily a microgreen diet at the Hippocrates Health Institute and became fascinated with the curative properties of the tender greens. Smith is an urban gardener who has won local awards for various produce. They use organic soil as a growing medium and try to find organically sourced seeds. After harvest, the soil is composted thereby creating minimal waste.
