Growing Sprouts and Microgreens
Is your green thumb itchy? Although it’s still a little too early to start seeds for outdoor edible gardens, it’s the perfect time to grow sprouts and microgreens indoors! Sprouts are sprouted seeds, a delicious ingredient that you can grow at home in as little as 3 days. Microgreens take a little longer, and are essentially tiny seedlings harvested when the first set of true leaves appear. These flavor-packed and colorful little plants add just what’s needed to brighten a winter meal.
In this class we will go over techniques for safely sprouting a variety of seeds for edible use and tips for growing microgreens to the perfect, delicious height. We’ll have a tasting at the end of the class so you’ll have a better idea of what you want to grow in your own home. You’ll go home with a jar for sprouting seeds, a tray for growing microgreens, and seeds of your choice.

Learning together in the garden, and kitchen, does much more than put fresh, nutritious food on the table. It helps build stronger communities, connect us to cultural heritage, improve public health and create a more sustainable, resilient city. Peterson Garden Project is a not-for-profit organization, and we're looking to inspire everyone we meet to grow and cook their own food and build community. If you love the taste of a homegrown tomato, are curious about growing food yourself, or are looking for a place to learn basic home cooking skills and make new friends over delicious food— then we're looking for you!
