Event Description

Microgreens are tasty and nutritious greensthat can be eaten as a fresh snack or added to salads, smoothies, soups and more. In this Westside Neighbourhood Food Network workshop with Yael Stav, you'll learn how to grow your own trays of microgreensat home year-round. We'll look at the difference between sprouts and microgreens, review the many possible seeds that can be used for starting microgreens, and look into troubleshooting common problems. You'll prepare your own microgreen tray to take home! Supplies included. We'll have a community seed library present - pick up some free seeds for your garden, swap or donate seeds.

Cost: $12.50 Free for Seniors (50 and over).
