Microgreens 101: Learning to Grow

Jay Taylor is a musician, sound healer, and urban farmer. He first began growing food while teaching at Carlos Fuentes Elementary in Chicago. The home/school experiment began with growing leafy greens in jars, then tomatoes in buckets, and finally an automated tower system. The limitations of these methods in terms of production and electricity consumption became obvious so Jay began looking into alternatives. The answer he found was microgreens. They were cheap to produce, easy to grow, took less than two weeks to harvest, were high yielding, superbly nutritious, and undeniably delicious. Microgreens 101 was born out of Jay’s desire to support others in tapping their own power and taking control of what they put into their body.

Jay is offering you a hands on experience in soiling, compressing, watering, and seeding a tray of Peashoots. Through this process you will learn how to consistently grow highly nutritious and delicious food in your home. The course will focus on the procedures of planting, growing, and harvesting microgreens and will feature essential information about water filtration, lighting, soil, and seed. When it is time to go you will take your tray and step-by-step procedures and finish the growing and harvesting process at home. In less than two weeks your harvest will yield roughly 1 pound of food with a grocery store value of $30!
